It started off smooth as it was a brand new car, and it way my first car. Visually pleasing nothing noticeably bad. Driving was consistent at the start but after having to replace a few parts in the car started to feel like the acceleration was decreasing over the years. I assumed that is consistent with all cars though. I had tinted windows and it was lowered to the ground as well.
Story
My girlfriend of the time and I took a road trip Quebec city in Canada a few years ago and we had enough room in the back to fit all our stuff. We could easily maneuver around the streets as it was a tighter fit than we are used to.
Pros
Favorite feature of the car was that it was manual, the color (bright red), the size of it, as I am a small person, and how it could fit a lot in it for moving.
Cons
Not enough room for friends to comfortably sit in it, gas wasn't the biggest concern but it was not as fuel efficient as modern cars.

I previously owned a 2000 VW GTI VR6 in futura yellow. I absolutely loved the color and often got many compliments on it as you just didn't see that color everyday. The interior had the best trim package, something that you would expect in a luxury car model but not an economy car. The leather seats held up for 10 years and were still in near perfect condition when I sold the car. The blue dashboard lighting was easy on the eyes for night driving--something I truly miss now that I have bright white dashboard lights. There was no interior noise and no rattles you get with other typical economy sports cars. The car was also exceptionally fun to drive. It handled very well in corners and turns. It rode smoothly with bumps hardly noticeable.
Story
Whenever another Futura yellow GTI would pass me on the interstate, they would flash their lights.
Pros
The construction--both interior and exterior--were high quality. The added touches such as the blue dashboard lights, leather seats, wood trim, heated seats, leather steering wheel all created a luxurious feel. Suspension was excellent. Cool that limited edition colors were offered.
Cons
Had to replace my max airflow sensor twice and oxygen sensors three times. Driver's side window fell out twice due to a poorly working window regulator that ended up being recalled.

This is the 3rd car we have bought from them in 1 year. We have a 2013 Jetta Hybrid, 2014 Passat and a 2015 Tiguan. They are great. They give you the best price right off the bat. They do not play games with pricing. Very trustworthy.

This is a great dealership because you get very personalized service and none of the salespeople are pushy. they will beat anyone's prices and they want to make sure you get the car you want at the price you want.
