    Let me guess...Because it isn't a Toyota?

    I hear front drive is better than rear drive in the snow.

    Nin!

    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.

    If I get it. I only owe 15 on my truck so I'm not sure if I want to start all over again.

    It isn't bad enough to not sell for $$$.

    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

    http://www.fastcar.co.uk/2007/11/top-10-gay-cars/

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

    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

    I don't mind cruising in it since I upgraded the sound, lighting, and iPod has 26 days of music on it, and 30+ mpgs.

    :eek: 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.
