My VW experience was very similar to yours. I always advise people to STAY AWAY from VW/Audi products. VW builds an appealing (on paper) car, but cannot seem to actually assemble a reliable car. Really, why cant't they? Even the Korean companies have vastly improved their quality but VW continues to believe that mediocre is good enough. What is really telling is that VW (as a company) maintains a "blame the customer" attitude. Very arrogant for a company that is peddling sub-par products. I will look at the Abarth 500 when it comes out in March. It appears that even FIAT has gotten serious about improving quality (unlike VW). I like many things about the new GTi but will not buy another VW probably ever.Report it
