Traded in my Golf 1.8t for this
vehicle. So far so good. For the
price I don't see how you could pass
on this, especially with the 2k rebate
and 500 rebate from State Farm or
Country Companies (Farm Bureau
Member). Loaded with options. Brakes
are top of the line. Better than the
new Acura. Quick (not fast), handles
great and gets outstanding gas mileage
(35 mpg) first tank. Pretty roomy for
a compact and has a big trunk.
Doesn't look like anything on the road
and there are a large number of
aftermarket products on the market for
this car. Replacement parts are also
cheap, especially coming from a VW -
1,000.00 for a clutch and flywheel.
Suspension. This car runs circles
around much more expensive cars. Put
this little grocery getter out on the
back roads and you will see what I
mean. Dirt cheap for this class.
No freaking power windows for back
seat? Who is the bean counter that
decided that. Stands too tall; lower
it and put bigger tires on it. Maybe
205s not the stock 195s. Trunk
