This car has been a nightmare. I
highly advise that if you are
considering a VW you should read
Consumer Reports: there you will find
that VW is next to last in reliability
among ALL manufacturers and the Golf/
Jetta platform is actually off the
charts in terms of poor performance.
My wife and I annually pay over $2000
in maintenance and we are the original
owners, the car has always been
serviced regularly at the dealer, and
has never been abused. In fact, my
Honda which is 3 years older and has
60,0000 more miles on it is far more
reliable. Please keep this in mind
when you make your decision.
none: the reliability issue ruined any
desireability long ago
Briefly, better component design,
standardized engineering, more
attention to functionality.
