    2002 Volkswagen New Beetle - GLS TDI (M5)

    Pros: comfortable seats

    Cons: gas mileage and blind spots

    Advice: if you're buying the diesle for gas mileage - DON'T - mileage stinks

    I went with the diesle engine thinking i would be getting good gas mileage. i'm barely getting 30 mpg - a far cry from 42-49 mpg that is quoted. the car is very comfortable with plenty of head room, however there is not much trunk space.

    2002 Volkswagen Jetta - GLS L (M5) Sedan

    Pros: tiptronic

    Cons: flimsy floormats

    Advice: do research before negotiating a price

    The Jetta is my first new car purchase, and I love it. It handles great, and the turbo is fantastic. I agree that the legroom in the back leaves much to be desired. I've also had some strange problems. The doors would rattle when I drove, and I had to take it in for service. Two other Jetta owners complained of the same problem. Also, the sunroof switch is crazed. On some days, it doesn't respond to whatever setting I specify. One more thing, the cd changer is fickle. The tracks skip, and I get various errors. I did purchase the cd changer from the dealer, so I'm not sure what the problem is. Weighing the pros and cons, I'm still happy with the purchase.

    2002 Volkswagen GTI - VR6 (EOP 9/16/01) (M5)

    Pros: Rain Sensing Wipers

    Cons: no indash 6 disc changer

    Advice: If you want the combinationg of performance and luxry get it fully loaded

    I've always wanted this car growing up and thorugh my Teenage years. Finally after I needed to trade in my 93 Passat wagon I didn't even look at other cars. I had the GTI VR6 in mind from the start. I did look at other cars online but already knew my choice. The minute I got in the car for a test drive it fit like a glove. I can't say that about many cars I've been in or test driven. also this Car has the Punch to keep up when you want it. It feels like the car was meant for driving. It just wants to go. I got it Fully loaded. 17' wheels and all. The wheels make the car for sure, as well and improve the Handleing. There is nothing but good things I have to say about this car. It is also FUN to Drive.
