i have a 2002 Jetta with the 1.8t and it's great. The only problem i have is I spin the tires out a lot but that's because i have no tred and need new tires. Plus the Jetta gets off the line faster because its lighter and has a turbo. I also think the Jetta would last longer. From what I've seen most Bonnevilles die around 150,000 miles.
