I test drove the Matrix, Protege and
Protege5 and never really considered
VW as a possibility. I was always more
of the Japanese type. However, the
second I pulled that thing out of the
lot my world changed. It's got quite
the pick up for 115hp and 120 torque.
But I have to agree that the
cupholders do block the stereo
controls, but I do like how they are
Smooth transmission, great brakes,
amazing standard saftey features.
Shorter throw on gearbox, firmer
clutch, cupholders that might not
interfere with stereo controls.
