Lower your expectations

1996 Volkswagen GTI VR6 2dr Hatchback
As much fun as my car is to drive, I've had ongoing problems since purchasing it as a 2nd owner initially with 95,000 miles. I have invested $$ to keep the car up to par, but to no avail as minor and major issues keep cropping up. Repairs as well as parts can be expensive so beware if you are financially strapped. It's unfortunate that Volkswagen which wrote the book on quality has now lost that winning formula.
Power and performance
Improve Quality of parts; better reliability; make parts less expensive including labor; longer warranty and better dealership experience.
