Unbiased Opinions: 5th Gen vs Jetta 1.8t

As a heads up i'm also posting this on vwvortex...With that said, I am selling my Jeep and am looking at either a MKIV Jetta/Golf G or a 5th gen, Im not really a fan of the vdub community but I hate how ricers ruin the Honda name. My budget is about 6-6500 and I like the Reliability and looks of the H especially the uniqueness of the pre but I prefer almost everything about the VW more except the electrical issues and the community. I like how with 600$ and a turboback I can get over 50 HP with a simple chip. Like i said...practicality brings me to the honda. If you had to do it over which would you choose? Also if anyone is near Long lsland, Ny and wants to trade a 98' Cherokee 109k hmu...Thanks, Rob

Re: Unbiased Opinions: 5th Gen vs Jetta 1.8t

in my experience vdub=pile of dog crap, although i don't have much experience with them. I am by far more pleased with honda. as far as being concerned about people thinking you are a douche bag because you drive a honda, who cares what they think, they are clearly ignorant if they think you are a ricer because you own a prelude, unless of coarse you are a ricer and rice out your prelude, then, they would be right lol.

Re: Unbiased Opinions: 5th Gen vs Jetta 1.8t

UN-biased opinion? There is a Black EP3 Civic si IN the bronx on sale for 6500. on auto trader.com.

VW isn't trash, I just hate the Random crap you read up on forums, The burning ache to get audi parts into the V-DUB, and the cost of the repairs. That's why all VW- owners are backyard mechanics; 6 month waiting list to have your car repaired at a dealer, or $1,856,098,256,908,589,345,895,697,835,681,091,056 bill from a 'Specialist' in German cars, rapist is more like it.

Also, they are borrowing the lower tier engines now from Audi, so the new owners are elitists. The problem with Preludes now, are they are Rescue cars now. you might find the old lady/60,000 mile scenario, it's just you could buy a rough base 5 speed for 3500-4500 and still have 3k to play with. VW are dogged by common people.

Op, if you are a hands on kind of guy that does your own oil, if the golf/jetta engines are as close as a passat. Have fun... There filters are a pain to get to, and stock to stock, I beat a 1.8t jetta in a 5th gen. :)

Golfs are nice!

Re: Unbiased Opinions: 5th Gen vs Jetta 1.8t

my cousin has a gti and a bunch of my friends do. from first hand experience once you start tuning them they turn to complete sh*t. all of my friends turbos are going. and only after like a year and a half after a stage 2 tune. also, I've been seeing FAR MORE riced out euro cars lately than hondas, but that might just be where I'm living. I've had my car 4 years not and I beat the living piss out of it and it still runs tip top. the euro scene is also complete sh*t too. so unless you plan on slamming your car to an undrivable height, you'll be a pariah

Re: Unbiased Opinions: 5th Gen vs Jetta 1.8t

I personally don't like Volkswagen especially because they have one of the ugliest cars possible in there line(beetle). I have hear to that one you start trying to tune them or mod them you run into problems. I say stick to a prelude it's economic, stylish, good HP aand very reliable.

Re: Unbiased Opinions: 5th Gen vs Jetta 1.8t

I have experience with both, well 4thgen but close enough. My Uncle owned a trubo Jetta like a 2006 or 07 brand new 1.8t. Learned to drive a stick in it so it holds a place in my heart. I loved getting to drive that car it was fun. However he got rid of it because the maintence costs were so high. Both from a dealer and doing it your self. The Honda would be much easier to work on yourself. Both cars require high test gas so your dead even their. Looks wise I prefer the prelude. Motor wise youll get more bang for your buck intially from the VW but in the long run from the Honda. As far as being concerned about what others think- WHO GIVES A RIP! Get what you want, do it your way, make it your style. And so called "ricers" can be found in Hondas VWs FORDs Chevys anything. I say get whatever makes you happy!

Re: Unbiased Opinions: 5th Gen vs Jetta 1.8t

Vws have ****ty electornic problems, if you don't get the DSG transmission plan on having some transmission kick (if u dont you are lucky). Vw's require alot of matenence and getting parts are expensive. prelude parts if u get the hook up aren't so bad and most places can do the work the same day rather then having to special order and all that crap.


only VW i would get would be an R32


get the prelude and stick to Pz so we can help u figure out the issues. if you get at vw they will hate u cuz ur not slammed on airbags rocking AMG wheels

TRUTH! I thought this was only NYC! I love forged rims, especially from AMG, but I'd make sure to remove all the MB logos first. Sorry can't rep, I've repped the crap out of everyone.

Also Does keeping H2 hubcaps on a GMC truck make me rice LOL ?

Re: Unbiased Opinions: 5th Gen vs Jetta 1.8t

I like doing stuff to my car..little things here and there..and learning to do repairs myself makes me feel good.

That said, I effing HATE working on my cousin's 2003 Jetta. Even changing the battery is a PITA. The problem she's having now is the car will randomly stop going on the freeway. Ignition stays on, no lights on the dash come on like it turned off..It just stops for a few seconds and goes again. Been to the dealer 4 times and they can't figure it out.

Honda builds their stuff so cut and dry, it's easy to figure out what's wrong, easy to fix, and easy to get going again. Plus, everyone's already done everything to every model Honda, so if you have a question about something, you're gonna get the answer.

As for the ricer thing..I could make the same complaint about any car; "I can't get a truck because all the cholo's make them into low riders and shoot people.".. "I can't buy a nice SUV because cops will think I have drugs or hookers in there all the time."

It's all a matter of perspective on that. But choosing between a Honda and a VW, well, that's just a matter of common sense.

You got it all wrong Lindso, The suv's are for packing up 40+ mexicans across the boarder, since they build our trucks nowadays they make secret compartments to hide in....



















Yeah I'm going to hell. But not in a Vdub.

Re: Unbiased Opinions: 5th Gen vs Jetta 1.8t

I've been working at Volkswagen/Audi since June of last year.. They really aren't as bad as people make them out to be. It's just that when they mess up, it does get expensive. VW and Audi engines aren't bad engines either. It's the electrical components and modules that screw up, and they cost a **** load to replace. I actually just got promoted from detail to service technician, and I'm not about to lie, I am nervous about working on them because they can be so phucking spastic.

THIS. i had to change a lock solenoid on a jetta. on my car i can have it out and a new one back in within 10 minutes. i sh*t you not this literally took 10 hours. EVERYTHING pretty much requires a specialty tool. and they just pile parts on top of parts and its impossible to reach anything

haha my boy went though hell with VW trying to get them to tell him anything about that problem and his car got so bad it wouldn't drive so vw couldn't test it to find the problem and basically said they wouldn't do anything except give him 1500$ credit to buying a new vw LOL they even had the idea to tell him that his car never had a warranty LOL
