This is by far the best car available on the road. The only flaw I can point out with it is that there isn't enough rear leg room.
I've had this car for 7 years now, and have put on 210,000 miles, I run it on synthetic oil, which I change every 8,000 miles. Other than that, the only other maintenance I've done to the car is changing the timing belt once, and replacing the clutch, and I think I've only changed the headlights and tail lights once. I've performed all of this myself with parts I've ordered offline, so I haven't had to go to the dealership.
You really can't beat the performance either. When I replaced the clutch, I put on a sport clutch and had a performance chip put in. I still get 44 mpg city, and I'll get anywhere from 50-60 mph highway, depending on speed and if I'm drafting. And even though it's a heavy car, it will do 0-60 in 7 seconds; that's better than the new TDI's, which have more horsepower and get less gas mileage.
After owning this, I really don't want to get a new car, there's nothing available today with the same kind of gas mileage or that kind of durability.
