  • Not worth the money

    Not only is the car more expensive to fix than a BMW, I had one problem after the other. I put new breaks (front AND back), a waterpump, ball joints, and more into it in less than six months. I put about $1,000 into the car, and I still have problems. VW's are known for electrical problems and it has proven to be true in my case. It does get pretty good mileage, about 32-34 MPG but it is not worth all the trouble and money when I only owned the car for two years.
  • THE WORST CAR EVER BUILT

    Bought the car brand new. Now with 40,000 in 6.5 years. VW was great with their handicapped driver program. The car got great safety ratings. So, it was a no brainer. Well, that was the END of the satisfaction. Poor gas mileage, that has never improved.(15city/19hwy) Many electrical problems, WAY TOO MANY RECALLS!!!(15 so far) Some for the same issue. Poor engineering, quality, & reliability. Dealerships are not equipped to take care of the problems.(I have tryed 4 in my area.) Every plastic piece on the car that could possably fall off, HAS. AND, what is up with the "Stewart Little" sunvisors??? I think they should have kept this car on the drawing board. This is definatly NOT a Volkswagen like I remeber. DO NOT BUY ONE OF THESE CARS!!! NEW OR USED.
  • DO NOT AGE WELL

    Lease one for three years then GIVE IT BACK!!! The vacuum hoses break repeatedly, the headlights and turn signals have burned out more times than I can count! Windshield wiper motor burned out too. Also went through two valve cover gaskets in two years. Now the headlights dont work unless you hit them like Fonzie used to turn on the jukebox. Icing on the cake was a hole in the radiator the day the title came in the mail. 6 years and 90k problem riddled miles. NEVER AGAIN!
