I bought this car new in 1998. It has
always been very fun to drive. Despite
it's cramped rear seat, lack of good
cup holders (seat adjustment levers
hold sport bottles perfectly!), and
it's little quirks and rattles, I love
this car and would do it all over
again. It now has 64,000 miles on it
and I would drive it cross-country. It
still has awesome power with the VR6/5-
speed combo. One tip, let VW install
the CD changer. That was my only
nightmare and it was because I took it
to an after market place.
Power/torque of the engine, handling,
boxy style, huge trunk, sunroof, auto-
down windows, bose stereo, reliability,
ability to put up with the torture I
put it through.
