I bought this car new in November,
2003. Huge incentive from VW so the
car was a steal.
I've been thrilled with it so far. The
build quality seems far superior to the
Mazda, Matrix, Impreza, Focus. No
comparison really. My sis-in-law owns
an Audi A4 Wagon that is a spitting
image -- same exact engine, same
interior --except the Audi has trip
computer, leather and 4wd. If you
think leather, trip computer and 4WD
equals $17,000, then go for the Audi.
My car was half the price of hers!
Engine, overall quality feel, value-to-
Improve the stereo a bit. Mine is the
base model. I had an issue with one
wiper blade after about a month.
Make the GLS more distinct from the GL -
- only difference is the sunroof.
