Grimly unreliable. This car reminds me of owning a 1977 Fiat in High School. VW's look classy and handle well, but things fall off this car (i.e. interior panels, turn signal covers, coat hooks) The check engine light flashes like a Munich disco. Never again will VW gain my business.
Classy interior, nice design, roomy hatchback.
Buy engines and electrials from Japanese suppliers.
