I have owned my 2003 1.8T 5A GLS wagon since new and now have over 146k miles.
It really is fun to drive and has amazing cargo hauling space.
. . expensive to maintain and gets only about 21 mpg on premium.
Make sure you have a good mechanic.
Mine is one of the best, and I still have a funky/random issue - a beep, blinking dash lights, then a power drop, as if the tranny disconnected with the engine.
As much as I like driving the car, I think I'm going back to Honda when old blue bites the dust.
