Well Worth The Investment. — Love getting almost 600 miles on ONE TANK! Acceleration is good thanks to the turbo. Brakes are awesome, stop on a dime, which is good because this car ride smoothly and you will be cruising above the speed limit before you know it. Very little wind noise, handles like a dream in gusting winds too. Lots of leg room in the rear. Fuel miser, low maintenance and fun to drive. Sunroof and premium sound system rock! Your teenager will fight you for he keys!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: 44 MPG city, 47-50 MPG hwy

Cons: TDI oil change every 8-10K will run you $65.00

Nice Little Package — rides great but I have noticed the gas mileage is not as good as my old 1996 golf probably due to the fact of another cylinder and heavier. IT still feels nimble and quick. Has lots of nice features that I like and it seems well made.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: great little car that full fills all my needs

Cons: not as good in gas mileage as the older cars

Awesomely Fun To Drive! — My car is pretty good. It's reliable and fun to drive. 6 speeds get you up and going quicker. I love the "S!" It helps when whenever I have to pull out of a busy intersection. I love the black interior, wish I had a moonroof though. That'd be perfect. And I am looking to trade rims. I would like the Jetta rims.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very reliable

Cons: If you have a large family, you should get a bigger car. Maybe the Passat, CC, or Touareg!

Awesome — reliable and love hearing that turbo spool... and awesome gas mileage vs. the superduty. Was dad's car to begin with but when he wanted the BMW I wanted the GLI. It would definitely give his 2010 328i a run on the highway

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: awesome to drive, all the bells and whistles(leather, heated seats, etc)

Cons: not finding any

Buy It! — Great car! This car handled like a sports car. Suspension was spectacular for a car in this price range. It was a TDI and average mielage was 50 MPG and at times it would do over 60 MPG. Solid car, no rattles or squeaks. Interior was great, easy to access everything from driving position and it looked good.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great handling, easy on fuel.

Cons: none

2006 Bat Outta Hell 2.5l — It performs excellently. Its a sexy car, black paint w/ crome, black leather, cant go wrong. gas mileage is great, a full tank(14+gallons) is about 450+miles. Drives great, wicked fun car to drive and putting that pedal to the floor will never get old.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: It excelerates like a madman!!  Handling is awesome, overall sexy car!!

Cons: Minor problems like the stereo has some volume problems, I have to get that fixed soon

My Vw Jetta Tdi — Its a good car to get around and alot of fun if you get it chipped but no matter what you do (chipped not chipped) you need to plan on replacing the rear brake pads often, the clutch needs replaced to a better higher torque rated clutch and the CAMs. And that is if the rest of car is in good shape. VW cheaped out on these items or even worse these items are design flaws! Fuel is pretty easy to find and you can make your own and it is easier than you think.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fuel Econ!

Cons: Clutch,Cams, Rear brakes
