My father warned me not to buy a VW,
but I didn't listen--Now I kinda wish I
had. I love the look of the car and
it's really fun to drive, however, I
bought it used in 2000, so it was
already 4 years old. I was elated until
I took it in 7 times for repairs. Lucky
for me I got a great 3 yr./100,000 mile
warranty--otherwise I would have been
screwed!. All the repairs were covered--
but about 9 months later the clutch,
brakes and lights all needed replacing.
I will say, though, that those are
typical things that need replacing. I
would just recommend that you really
take your time choosing and
System, the ride (it's fun if it's a
stick shift), the look/design, the
space and fuel capacity.
