Review

Bought it new, changed the oil regularly, had trouble with windows and AM antenna (both fixed by dealer under warrantee), yellow goop cleaned at each oil change by dealer for a few years, just changed the battery and tires. I could not expect more from a first year of a new style.


Best Features

The max torque at 3000 rpm really helps get up those hills with out a problem. Fun to drive. Power outlet in trunk comes in handy. Love the auto-up on the front windows.


Worst Features

What is with the goop? Do I really need the dealer to change the headlights?

Review

I bought this vehicle used. It is has all of the extra options such as a moonroof, power-everything, cruise, and a terrific sound system. I love the car so far. The one thing that I do not like about this car is the power window failure. Apparently this is common in Volkswagen cars and it is very expensive to repair.


Best Features

My favorite feature of this car is the sound of the motor when I am driving. You can feel the power. It drives wonderfully and is easy on the eyes.


Worst Features

I think that Volkswagen should extend the warranties. The current warranties only last 50,000 miles. The window motors went out on my car at 52,000 so I was unable to repair it to my affordability.
