    I had one for a few years but recently traded it in for an Acura TSX - needed something a bit bigger, and I drive a lot so I was piling on the miles pretty quickly - I hate owning a car not under warranty (especially something as expensive to repair as a German car) but drive way too much to lease. I love my TSX, and it's a great car, but every time I see a GTI on the road, I miss mine.

      I love this car. I also have more tickets since I owned it than in my entire life before. It's too too easy, and fun, to go too fast. Also, it's red, and gets noticed by the cops. Seriously, my lawyer just told me to trade it in for another color! It's also had a lot of repairs, the tires are expensive....but I love driving it.

      Before that I owned a Saturn coupe (had it 11 yrs.) and before that - a VW Fox. Before THAT, a Datsun B 310 hatch. And before that, in college, I drove the family '73 Nova.
