    Vw Gti — really like it I have streetglow everywhere on it plus a diverter valve very nice i think it is a pretty rough ride my suspension is starting to squeek at 53,000 miles the appearance is okay VW could have done better but whatever

    Pros: good torque for a car this size

    Cons: not fast enough , only got about 180ish horsepower

    Fun Little Daily Driver With Some Bite. — I've owned this car for over a year now and still have no complaints about it. It's fun, economic, reliable, and it's a VDUB! I'll write a more "in-depth" review later when I have some time.

    Pros: Affordable, fun, economic, very quick, good potential

    Cons: More expensive to maintain than similar cars but it's well worth it.

    Pros: gas mileage, doesn't stand out

    Cons: its heavy

    4.5 Stars — Heated seats, sunroof, 60/40 split rear seats, city gas mileage is great! I've put just under 40,000km on in the first year and have had the inner CV Joints replaced, new tires, the left outer CV Joint replaced and the Struts (makes you wonder what and where I drive to eh?) It's been pretty good to me so far...

    Pros: Speed

    Cons: Highway mileage not so good...

    A Real Drift Machine!!!!! — This car saved my life many times!!!! Its look is amazing, especially tuned!!! It is a really strong car for a 2.3 liter engine and i can claim many wins against other cars that underestimated my car!!!!!

    Pros: Its agile, smooth,,strong, and really good for drifting, accurate handling!!!!

    Cons: Automatic gear is crap (has a lot of problems), coupe is annoying if u have more passengers than one!!!!!

    Understated — Looks like your grandma´s car until you rev it up past 4.500rpm. Could use a stiffer suspension though.

    Pros: Looks ordinary, comfy seats, solid feel.

    Cons: Could use more power and low end torque.
