I test drove one with my mom the other day. The 2.0L had enough power for old granny driving but I would get the 1.8T. Mainly because the car couldn't even go up a slight hill in 5th gear at 45mph without it getting bogged down. So if you're hauling a lot of people or a bunch of junk in the back I think the 2.0L may be a little underpowered.
I have one, 2001 2.0 wagon....its a bit sluggish at times i must say...they werent offering a 1.8 when i got mine.....if you can afford it i would recommend getting the turbo if you are into modding for speed...the 2.0 is ok for running around though...i dropped in a k&n and added an exhaust and that helped a bit....
