This car has been a major
disappoinment. I leased this car new
in 1998 and have been trapped in a four
year lease! It was great for the first
year, but on the one year anniversary
of the car, the electrical system
shorted out. Since then, my dashboard
shorts out and I have to hit the dash
to get the lights back on. My stereo
gets louder as I try to turn it down.
Then my wheel covers ended up missing.
To top it all off, my exhaust system
fell out, and was not cheap to
replace. Now I have an unidentified
rattling coming from the rear of the
car. I also found that I did not have
that great of a gas mileage. Oh well,
live and learn. I'll never buy VW
