    2002 Volkswagen GTI - L (M5)

    Pros: INTERIOR ROOM

    Cons: Outside mirrors should be enlarged

    Advice: Buy it before the price goes up

    Kudos to VW for making a compact and roomy auto that is fun to drive. I am 6'3' tall and I have plenty of head, sholder and leg room. The car has plenty of cargo room. Acceleration and handeling performance are outstanding for any vehicle, particularly one priced less than $25,000. I have never owned a VW befor, so long as VW continues to provide this kind of quality and value, I will be a loyal customer!

    2002 Volkswagen Passat - GLS (M5) FWD Sedan

    Pros: tightness of the car

    Cons: Turbo noise from the engine

    Advice: Drive it on an open road to check out the noise level

    It's a great car...just too noisy. The turbo makes the engine sound loud.

    2002 Volkswagen Cabrio - GL (M5)

    Pros: exterior looks

    Cons: performance, safety, drurability, everything!

    Advice: Don't buy it!

    I purchased a 2001 Cabrio, automatic, and all I have had is problems with this car. My air bags don't function properly. My air bag lights keep on coming on indicating that there are problems with the car. The gas mileage is horrible and the a/c is not cold at all. I took it in and they say that it is normal when other cars, by far, have much colder ac. I had a saturn before this and it drove wonderfully! Don't buy this car. It is the cheapest convertible out there but it is not worth it!
