Bought my 2013, TDI ragtop in April and it is a hoot to drive. The problem is, the service department has it more than I do. Wind noise from top, door dent by dealer, interior lighting issue, passenger window regulator issue, driver's door pinch point issue that required an external body shop to remove and reinstall the door! ~ 5 or 6 trips to service with now over 30 days. I'm contacting a lemon law attorney as it is only 6 months and 7K miles old. While it is fun to drive, the fit and window, seals and electronic controls for same are 3rd. world. Read and study before you buy. Volkswagen not helping me at all while the dealer has done his best.
The interior design is outstanding. Handling outstanding. I highly recommend the TDI engine if it was in someone else's chassis.
Drive and test sometime after you build it VW. Window issues for years? ... Wind noise in all convertibles ( per my dealer ) that sounds like a truck? ... Do your DD and fix problems the first time and well.
Also, when your customers get a super-lemon, don't attempt to blow them off. Accept your responsibility as a supposed world class manufacturer.
