"It's a car that needs a lot of TLC! The car will run great once you get all the bugs out of it. I would like to tell you about the flaws first. The speakers will need to be rewired after a while! The car will eat front tires like they are nothing! The car will have a lot of parts once it reaches the half way mark of it life! The car is a real pain to work on! Unless you have small hands and a lot of time and can stand to be in tight spots! The car isn't really bad on oil until it need a oil change! It takes a lot of water to! Now for the good in the car! The car has sound system like a newer model car! The car is very simple. You will get everything down for it in not time. But over all it's a good car. You just need to take time with it."
Cons: "No cruise control, power locks, mirriors, & window"

"My car is actually a '92 model. More boxier. I bought this car when I was 16 as my first car, it only had 75k miles at the time. I've been on a lot of road trips through rain, snow, ice, dust storms and the car never let me down. It's a comfrontable ride and smooth. Make corners with ease. Sadly the motor is starting to give out, which mean about to get a new one for it, I'm never trading this car in. Love it!!"
"VW's reliability matched with reasonable maintenance cannot be beat. I just love European handling and engineering. Corners great. Acceleration around 45mph could be better though (w/ automatic tranny). Overall a great car."
