    2002 Volkswagen Jetta - GLS 2.8L (EOP Week 40) (M5) Sedan

    Pros: More car for less money

    Cons: Cup holder placement, and door rattles

    Advice: make sure you live close to the dealer

    great car when it works...have had five major problems (all fixed under warranty) within first 6000 miles of the car. Be careful, VW pretends as if your car is the only one that has a door rattle... Maybe I should have bought that Honda, with a better service record?!

    2002 Volkswagen Passat - GLX (M5) FWD Sedan

    Pros: Handling

    Cons: price for up keep

    Advice: get a standard!

    I have had my Passat for 2 years now. I have absolutely no complaints. The acceleration and the handling are that of a sports car. I purchased a standard and from what I have found out about the automatics, it was definitely to my advantage. I would recommend this car to anyone young and old.

    2002 Volkswagen New Beetle - GLS TDI (M5)

    Pros: power of the TDI, power sunroof, and most of all, heated seats in winter!

    Cons: Have an 18 month old daughter, hard to use car seat in back, also the cup holders. The only oops in the car! Flower vase is plain, you can buy good looking aftermarket ones on the web.

    Advice: This is the perfect car for someone single or couple. Great roadtrip car. Test drive and you WILL be sold! I promise.

    I was first hesitant about size of vehicle cause I am a big guy. My test drive threw that out the window. Very comfortable, plenty of headroom for driver and passenger.Blown away with the power this car has. You will not be stuck behind semi's on hills with this gem!Gas milage is a bonus treat! 45 mpg on my automatic!

    2002 Volkswagen Jetta - GLS TDI (M5) Sedan

    Pros: TDI Diesel mileage, 40 + miles/gallon

    Cons: cup holder in front of CD player

    Advice: Buy one quick, BEST value!

    The best car for the money at under $20,000! All the extras with out being expensive options! Got the diesel, gets great gas mileage, went to beach and back (240) on half a tank! Lots of power with only 90 Hp, gets up and goes, and cruises smooooth! Sharp looker especially in Black with gold trim. Looks like a $40,000 vehicle, saves BIG dollars on fuel, how can I loose!

    2002 Volkswagen GTI - L (M5)

    Pros: Tiptronic transmission made by Audi

    Cons: 17

    Advice: Test drive this car before laying down 22K for anything else!

    It is hard to explain what it is like to drive this new GTI. The 180 HP engine makes the wheels squeal like never before. Finally, VW has made the stock version of this car a serious contender in the 'speedy' crowd. The GTI stays up with most 6 cylinder challengers and even some 8 cylinders guys. The car is heavy and feels well planted on the road surface. I have the optional 17' wheels and sticky Michelins that help keep the front end on the ground and not in the air. VW also put old optional sport suspension as standard equipment to help keep this pocket rocket stable. For people who like to shift manually once and a while, the Tiptronic automatic transmission (made by Audi) is just right. I think it knows when to shift better than I do since I got a lower 0-60 time in Drive than by my own shifting!! It was just mentioned that VW is bringing out a limited edition (1000) GTIs in May that contain new lower body panels, Recarro GTI seats, and 18' wheels. Get your order in now.
