This is one tough little car. There are
problems: The emission sensors are way
too sensitive and the "Check Engine"
light can't decide if it wants to stay
on or not; There are times when the
fuel mixture is off [sensor again], and
the car's idle speed zooms up out of
nowhere. However, it moves like
anything and I can zip from here to
My most favorite feature is the
controls for the windows; the
hatchback; and the gas cap. I have
rented other cars and you really miss
the auto up/down feature on the VWs.
Another is the sound system. I bought
an after-market CD changer and have
never regretted it.
They could do better with the mats. I
had to chuck my original ones and get
the monster mats because the damn
things just fall apart. Next time, I'm
going to make the dealer put them in at
no extra cost.
