Gas mileage is great and the
performance is about the same as the
pathetic 2.0 engine. Reliability is a
serious issue. Both tie rods, the
infamous VW window regulator, a brake
relay, and now the power steering pump
have all failed after the lame warranty
ran out. German engineering is a
myth. These cars break just as often
but cost twice as much to fix.
