Perfect car for me

2001 Volkswagen Golf GL 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Perfect car for a recent college grad. Great build quality to shame a Merc, luxurious ride, fun to drive, all the safety bits (8 airbags, disc brakes w/ABS, etc), nicely equipped, and a sense of a car costing $10k more. More than 2 yrs on, and ppl still give me looks as if it were an Audi (which it feels like). Has been dead reliable, always starts (even in mid NE winter), and the size and space of hatch is amazing. Pity my color is no longer offered-bright green-cause it makes it look so upscale. Love the looks, love the price (paid less than $15k), and love the fuel econ (+30mpg).
Favorite Features
Ride comfort, build quality, interior space, fun to drive, practical, excellent brakes, peppy low-end torque, peace of mind of side/curtain airbags
Suggested Improvements
more power (addressed for new '05 model, or upgrade to GTI), and PLEASE VW bring the Pump Duse diesel engines- 150 HP, 230lb-ft!!!!
