Good Car. — A German car that is designed for the Autobahn. Handles very well too. Good quality parts, and good material make a solid structured car. The car is fun to drive; especially when it's a stick. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

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

Pros: That it's German

Cons: 1st Gear Acceleration

Good Car, Just Make Sure You Have The Warranty! — Compared to driving my truck this is my "go-cart" Fun little car to drive and gets good miileage! The transmission might have a bad valve body, but it also lears how the driver drives, so it just might be that system causing us to think there is a problem.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fun!

Cons: Will have had two warranty items replaced in under 12000miles

Can Say Nothing Bad About It! Drivers Wanted! — As fun to drive as it is good looking! Excellent acceleration for a 5 cylinder. 6 speed gearbox works well and is well mated to the engine. Build quality is amazing! Every bit as well put together as a BMW or Audi!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fun, comfortable, and economical- the perfect combination!

Cons: You should buy this car

2008 Volkswagen Jetta — The performance of this car is pretty good. For acceleration means it does pretty good for the base model. Just after awhile the braking tends to wear off but it has extremely good handling. The quality of this car is okay, but because it is a foreign car the repairs are very costly. The cost of ownership is extremely great a low cost. As far as driving this car it is very nice to have as a car for everyday driving.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Illuminated Lights and Automatic Lights

Cons: Maintenance Costs

V-dublicious — Its a fun car to drive, it looks sporty yet classy at the same time. The chrome grill makes it stand out a bit and adds a nice touch. The interior looks solid as most german cars do however it needs a bit more detail.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It handles well, feels solid inside and looks solid on the outside

Cons: No fog lights, and the interior could be a bit more detailed

I Love It. — Services are so far apart! One of the most fuel economic cars on the market- They set a guinness world record with it. The styling is great its gorgeous to look at but not showy or over the top. Very reliable and most of all safe- one of the safest on the market in that category.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Economy, reliability, safety, styling.

Cons: Cant think of any!

Wonderful Car Spoiled Completely By A Very Unfortunate Driving Position. — It's a very good car, fast, stable, economical, good looking, BUT the driving position SUCKS, I just find it impossible to feel really comfortable because probably they built this car for an average driver that is shorter than me. The steering wheel is to high, does not extend enough towards the driver, and it should be more vertical. The foot rest next to the clutch is too close, it is uncomfortable especially on highway driving.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The TSI engine is just very very good, I think you have to go to BMW to find a better engine.

Cons: If you're tall, check the driving position befor buying.
