I replaced a 95 VW Jetta with the 850
Turbo Wagon. I am very impressed with
the cargo capacity of this vehicle.
The built in child seat is invaluable
as it allows for a third person to sit
with my two children in the back seat
comfortably. It does lack a cup holder
which is inconvenient but can be added
via special order. The turbo adds power
to create 220HP which comes in handy.
Very comfortable ride. With 117K miles
it drives without flaw. Mileage is fair
with 18-19mpg in city. Overall a great
Turbo, built in child seat, front seats
(with heat) are very comfortable, cargo
space, climate control.
Radio is fair, albeit this is a '94, it
could have better sound quality.
