Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: Solid body structure
Cons: no negativesGreat quality and a better value than a Mini.
Pros: Auto roll down windows, with a viper auto start system is a dream come true.
Cons: That i had to sell it to keep my house.... :(I used to own a 2005 GTI in Indigo Blue and jsut fell in love with the car. I only had it stock for about 3 months before i started tuning. Even before i replaced the suspension my friends with Sti's and subies couldnt believe how it handled. Race car, with too many luxaries to describe ....
Pros: Trunk is huge, great pick up and very dependable.
Cons: The cloth on seats is not as durable as the rest of the car.This is my 4th Golf in 25 years and I still love the car. It still looks brand new after 6 years and 69000 miles. Never have had any problems.
One Sweet Fun Ride
Pros: Fit and finish is beyond belief
Cons: Really cannot think of anything I do not like about this carBeautiful car to look at with timeless appeal inside and out. 2010 redo design cues taken directly from Audi A4. Fit and finish beyond belief and far better than 3 series No cheap plastics like the 3.
Best Bang for Buck...Ever!!!
Pros: Interior finish/seats
Cons: No 6 speed manual tranny.What a deal this little road warrior is! With incentives I got this little tiger for $16.5 K. It's quick at low or high speeds. With 18' wheels it's a snake on sandpaper. Seats are fabulous and finish is absolutely first rate. I love it!!!
Kleine GTI - Fun & Practical
Pros: Sporty handling
Cons: Speedometer (precision lacking at normal speeds)Bought this car four years ago and still love driving it. With its handling, speed and utility, its probably the best balanced car you can buy. A defective A/C compressor has been my only real problem - though it took awhile to get it finally straightened out. Other than that its been a very reliable, hot hatchback.
Pros: The distinctive Beetle shape that makes people smile when they see it.
Cons: road noise...it's so low to the ground that all noise travels to the cabin. I have a 5 speed and that may increase it.This is my second Beetle and my 4th VW. I like the sturdiness of a Beetle..and the dependability...and the cuteness, and the size......and the flower vase,..and the big windows,...and the 5 cylinder engine, a perfect match for my car, with all the power yet good fuel economy to please me.
