VW makes good cars.

I like my 2010 Maxima better, though.

My friend has a Maxima....2006 I think. We're going to "compare" them tomorrow. I'll get back to you on the results. :ann0y:

It says the 0-60 on this is 6.7, but I did less than that today. Going to see what the max I can get is tomorrow. It's so fast...especially in 2nd gear, the thing just glides through the air. Makes a great sound too, almost like you're on a space ship or something.

Yeah but you've got a 3.5L engine...you need all that horse power and torque just to pick itself up. It also weighs 500+ pounds more than mine.

2.0 Turbo charged engine in the GTI.

0-60 I would have you. Anything above that the 6 cylinder V6 would kick in and you would kick my butt.

That is true. My other car is a Ford Explorer. You'll beat that one and really beat it on mileage. But it can tow a boat.

That's my favorite part of the car. Expensive as hell to replace, but I put a 5 year warranty on them, so, they'll be looking like that for at least 60 months. :yay:

PZ, what year is your VW? The early 2000 cars seem to need a lot of repairs. Supposedly they have improved their reliability tremendously since around 2006-2007. Hopefully my car lasts for a LOOOOONG time.

VW makes some reliable cars, if you exclude the Beetle. But the Jetta and the Passat are excellent cars.

They're completely remaking the Beetle for 2012. It's an awful car in every sense of the word. I think they should shut it down completely. But we'll see what they do with it.

Congrats!! Nice ride! Enjoy. When is the first road trip to Miami for a phins game??

I have an 05 Nissan X-Terra that I absolutely love. My wife has the family car, an 06 Honda Oddysey.

It's a 2002 VW Passat Wagon... I mean it runs, but every time I get something fixed, something else breaks.

I also drive 140+ miles a day... soo can't expect too much I guess.

Well, I bought it with 48,000 miles on it in October 2008... it now sports 116,000 miles...

So if I cross my T's and dot my I's it comes to about 68000 miles or 34,000 miles/year

Good thing I don't lease! hahaha

I'll stick with my 09 F150 SuperCrew. I could probably fit the GTI in the bed if you ever break down. :grin:

it's a nice car though. I used to have an 02 Jetta TDi. I loved it, until I tried to ride around with 2 small kids in the back seat and my knees were on the dash.

I've brought it to a number of mechanics... It's just a bad design... right now I'm waiting for the courts to settle a battle between NJ and VW for a leak issue... it's going to appeals court now after the initial ruling was in favor of the state... so it could be awhile before I get that money back.

I'm sure a lot of it is just normal wear and tear too from all the travel. Right now it has an exhaust leak, the O2 censor (one of them) is breaking/broken and it has a rattle in the front.

I love my 05 Accord coupe, this is my 2nd Accord with no complaints.

Careful pushing that car so hard PR, it would suck to blow the engine so quickly.
