"Its my third year of owning the car. I still enjoy driving it every day. the vr6 offers nice gusto for those moments you need it. Its been fairly issue free vw is good about telling you about recalls. I had an issue with my traction control. buy an extended warranty. it saved me big you can drive it hard!! the VR6 has a huge clutch and will rip it up on the highway!! safe driving"

"This car in a word: Exciting. Some people I have heard have had some troubles with them, but honestly there's always going to be a lemon among the bunch in any lineup. I bought this used a couple of months ago in Jan. 09, and yes I've already had to have the transmission replaced (which is why I gave a 4 out of 5 stars on reliability). But to VW's credit, it was covered on warranty, got myself a fancy rental on them, and all is running tip top now. I just improved the value of my car for free too! Not sure why the tranny went bad but I have a feeling the previous driver was not so good to this car. Other than that I've had various things repaired/replaced right when I bought it that are normal. I'm pretty meticulous so possibly some of it might have been missed by the average driver. All in all my experience with the car and with VW service has been excellent and now the car drives, runs and looks like a dream!"

"This has been an awsome car. I never had a manual before I got this car and I love driving it. It has pep when you need it and is very easy to drive. I always feel safe in this car it is put together in a great way. I have had 5 people in it and everyone is still comfortable. I also drive it in the winter with winter tires and it does better then any other car we have."
