When I drove this car off the lot it was 9 years old good condition low miles. But within a few months the problems started, needed a new fuel pump trans. started slipping shifting hard intermittently car would die once shut off and required discon & recon of battery at least once a month. Window regulator broken, drivers window switch broken, seat belt & drivers door sensor don't work(purchased it like this) & now with 110k the cat. convert is failing along with the o2 sensors(not cheap parts!) & the current problem is the braking when I first drive in the morning the brake pedal & brakes feel like they're pulsating and then it goes away for the rest of the day might be time to trade...
Gas mileage! (before the cat went bad)
I still love Volkswagens and this will not deter me from purchasing another!
Everything that I listed above as problems! Would LOVE improvements!
Update...the automatic transmission failed in December 2012...had it rebuilt and failed again in less than 2 months...I just need it to last me until I pay it off...I love the car just not the problems...such a shame since it has such a great engine...the automatic transmissions are horrible for this year...
