VWs need some quality control
By 1eire on
Vehicle2000 Volkswagen GTI GLX VR6 2dr Hatchback
ReviewI took a trip from Texas to NY and was impressed by the ride quality, the effortless way the engine pulled the car through mountains, and that I was getting 30+ highway mpg during the trip. In NY I stopped at a toll booth and rolled down the window. The window actually fell into the door and was rattling around. I found a VW dealer and they fixed it for free even though it was barely out of warranty. Nice but a window regulator shouldn't fail after 24k miles. The passenger window failed at 30k miles. VWs like the GTI and Passat drive beautifully but are also high priced for their categories and the quality and reliability should match the price. Unfortunately, that is not happening.
Best Features* Smooth and effortlessly powerful VR6 engine * High quality interior * Hatchback versatility
Worst Features* Flimsy cupholders in dash * Both power window regulators have failed within 30K miles * Shifter could be improved * Handling is poor for a supposed "pocket rocket" * Having to remove the back seat headrests before folding down the seats
