I used to drive 1994 VW jetta. and before that 3 other vdubs. VWvortex is great for info. Hopefully this forums heads in the same direction as the tex. Will always like volkswagens, but this change has been great.

Before the Patriot, I drove a 2000 saturn (my first new car). When we traded in the odyssey, I gave that to my husband and I took the Patriot (except days he drives the carpool).

Since this thread has alot of VW people, I will add that my first car (briefly) was a VW diesel rabbit, next was an 85 jetta, then a 91 jetta (all used)

I drove a 2003 Olds Alero, sold that so I could get a Patriot. My very first car was an 1984 VW Rabbit, loved it was a fun car. Got it in 1996 only had it 2 years, then it died for good.

Long list

I've driven a lot. Patriot might replace my 91 Ram 250, but not sure. It's awful handy when you need it. I have a 95 Lebaron GTC convertible as well, that stays. Wife has 2004 T&C.

Vehicles from past that I loved....

70 Beetle with a 4 speed
72 F250 Ranger 4x4 4 speed (farm truck)
74 Dodge Demon 225 slant 6 3 speed
76 Dodge Aspen R/T 318 auto
80 Dodge 200, 225 slant 6, 4 speed (farm truck modded for heavy pulling)
81 Dasher Diesel 4 speed
91 Comanche I6 Rambler with injection, 4x4 auto (NEVER should of let that one go. Sold it to my dad, currently has 46,000 and just starting to rust, still all original including tires. Told him I want ti back when he's done with it)
53 Chevy Viking 2.5 ton w/230 straight 6, vaculator brakes, 4 speed, 2 speed vacuum operated rear end (farm truck)

Vehicles I hated....
72 Vega GT 140 auto
75 Dart 225 Slant 6, 3 on the tree (parents car)
76 Camero 350 w/Rochester Quadra Junk carb and 4 speed
81 Firebird 151 (Iron Duke) w/TBI 4 speed (nightmare of a car)

Wow, quite a bit of 'dub owners here on this forum.

I agree with a poster that VWvortex, hands down, been arguably one of the best automotive car forums around. It was well-established and tonssssssss of members and vendors.

Hope this one turns out to be a success too!
