Don't Buy This Car

ReviewI'll never buy a Volkswagen again. Door handles, glove box, knobs falling off/melting, even though handles have been replaced 3 times. Ditto for random indicator lights and windows that go up and down whenever. Worst though, are the tie rods. First replaced when car was 3ish. Four years later, we're sitting in a hotel 4 hours from home waiting o/n for new TRs to be delivered tomorrow b/c car is un-drivable - at a total cost of $1K for hotel, rental car and repair. And we'll have to drive back in a week to pick up the car once it's fixed. Car sits in garage 9 of 10 days and is used only for highway miles, so our driving not at fault. Our mechanics unanimously agree car is total crap.
Best FeaturesEven with the shoddy quality of the interior, and the constant repairs, I do love driving through the wine country with the top down and the music on. And it is super easy to park. Small, but still seats 4.
Worst FeaturesCar belongs in a junkyard. Only improvement would be to crush the whole thing and buy a more reliable car from some other auto maker.
