Cool And Somewhat Good Looking — Very fun to drive in in sport mode. very eco with 57.5 MPG! that alot for a car that can go 156 MPH. very cool looking too just needs a body kit. I get this cat when I'm 15 1/2, but for now I drive on the back roads.

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

Pros: fun

Cons: load

Standard Tdi Jetta — Great fuel milage- 50-55mpg if you drive normally, 45 if you have a lead foot. Made of steal and a heavy gauge that is aproved in Germany. The appearance is very sportsy and sleak, very nice. however the it has had much electronical problems, besides that, it runs beautifully. The clutch is a true VW- VERY TRICKY. will stall in a heart beat, but if you can drive it you can drive any standard. I perfer this car though over any other (including the caddy).

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: fuel effiency

Cons: electrical probs

Incredible Car. Love It — i like the handling but it could use a little more horsepower. havent had any problems just scheduled maintenance. its a fun car. the car will save you money in the long run because of the diesel which will run longer and get you 40-50 mpg.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: get to where you need to go

Cons: none

Get Over The Looks And You Will Have A Great Car — Great car.Had a 2005 A3 2.0T before this and this is better for my needs as have now gone from spending NZ $ 160-180 every other weekend to NZ $ 80-90.Sure its not as fun as the A3 ( I knew that would be the case ).But once on the open road you wouldnt know that its a TDI under the bonnet.Mid range overtaking seems better that A3.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great if you do lots of driving

Cons: None

I consistently scrape in 46.2 miles per gallon ! At 80 miles an hour - Its as smooth as they get !

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Gas mileage

Cons: No complaints, Runs like a clock and never stops !

I Have To Give It A Title. Sigh — Only regret was not being able to get the diesel power train. The 2.5 still has plenty of torque, and the car handles amazingly. Tiptronic along with just enough traction control makes even the most amateur driver feel like a veteran rally driver. Overall great car for getting five people around comfortably.

Pros: Fun. Powerful. Handles. Space. Comfort

Cons: could use more power. Trunk wont close after first slam in the winter. The diesel wasn't sold in new york till now. I want the diesel.
