2003 VOLKSWAGEN JETTA
Tdi ALH engines of this vintage last 500k miles at 45-50 mpg. You can't drive anything cheaper.
2006 VOLKSWAGEN JETTA
We bought a TDI model Jetta. My wife wanted a car that was family friendly, had a great trunk and got great fuel mileage. This car exceeded all of those requirements. Very satisfied with the vehicle, it is amazing in fuel economy, roomy, quiet, and comfortable. An amazing car that I can't recommend enough.
2002 VOLKSWAGEN GTI
I love this Golf GTI 5 speed. It is a great car, with 152,000 miles not as many problems as I was expecting had a few vacuum leaks and the clutch went out, but for the original clutch it lasted way longer than expected. Overall I would suggest picking one up if you have the chance, they are a blast to drive!
