People... Save yourselves! I went with
a VW Golf because of their historically
good track record. Let me tell you,
history did not repeat itself here. The
dealership I purchased the Golf from
forgot to install a 'block heater'
(which is required for our cold
winters). I have had the radio replaced
twice, difficulties with the windshield
wipers hoses, passenger window falls,
heater fan replaced, and most recently
the airbag indicator light has
malfunctioned. Not only has the car
been 'a piece' but the dealership I
have had to deal with has been very
difficult. I think that car sales are
boosted by a clever marketting scheme.
Good gas mileage
Deal with the electrical problems. Plan
out a service regime that does not
inconvience owners, rather helps them
deal with their fraustrations.
