Even with all scheduled maintenace and oil changes, so much unscheduled maintenance for issues that prevent the car from going. Ignition coil and ignition wires (x2). Starter motor and solenoid. Distributor. Radiator. Have also had to replace wiper motors, door lock cylinder, o2 sensor, coolant flange (coolant leaking), valve head gasket (oil leaking). The list goes on and on. I don't even want to count the number of times I have had to sit and wait for a tow truck. I'll never buy another VW again. Ever.
Love the hatchback. Good space utilization for a small car. All controls very easy to locate and reach. Fun to drive, when it is running.
Improve reliability. Use better adhesive for door bumpers. Improve electronics. Improve gas mileage.
