The VW (underground if you will) family is as big or bigger thanToyota.
They are def special vehicles and very customizable. We just miss the TDI fuel mileage
I was actually thinking about a new Golf R but it isn't exactly fuel efficient when compared to other vehicles. I was browsing around this weekend. The dealer I went to had a bunch of GTIs and Golf TDIs.

Yep, it actually was a girls car, (I got it from a repair shop as a loaner vehicle) when I opened up the dash and found 12 pony tail rubber band things in it. Thankfully no glitter or other junk, (except over a dollar in change in the backseat! lol)

and

but I think it is the best looking Jetta (still boxy and masculine--I mean it is in the Fast and the Furious)

I had a '92 GTI and a '99 Jetta before getting my truck. They both did pretty good in snow. Especially with snow tires. I wish I could have the Jetta and my Taco.





I made both of these earn it!

I never said they didn't...

I do like the Jetta but would a lot more if I lived in Southern Utah again or a place with a lot less snow... but 30+ highway mpgs are nice

sell and get a Corolla or the FR-S when it comes out, 3 year battery life isn't unheard of up here, my power locks have long since broken/been disabled by me, as well as my alarm, but my water pump and trunk release still work!
I doubt I will buy another fwd car again.

how many miles? mine just hit 130k and had the tranny swapped at ~115k and new clutch at same time.
