Bought it brand new in 96, problems started almost right away w/ the moonroof (luckily, it's still under the 2-yr bumper to bumper warranty). In 5 yrs I owned the car & less than 40k mileage (not to mention that the car was serviced regularly), 3 out of 4 power windows were broken, continuous AC problems (mechanic couldn't figure it out), poor gas mileage & the latest, had smoke coming out from the steering wheel (again, mechanic couldn't find out what's wrong). Trade it w/ Toyota Corolla & couldn't be happier. Stay away from VW!!
