This is my third VW and when I drove it
from the dealers lot, I was very
pleased. Since then there has been the
problem with wear and ride of my Good
year Eagles (dealer replaced), the
springs popping out of my from seats,
the MAF sensor ($400 for the part), the
constantly blown driver side break
light, the dead alternator (36,000 mi,
$850 to replace), and finally the front
window lift failures (acknowledged as a
defect by VW after many years). And
need I say the long wait times for a
maintenance appointment at the dealer.
The pickup of my VR6.
Quality, Quality, Quality. Assembling
in Mexico seems to be OK, but the
components that go into the car and
repairs (beyond the realm of most home
mechanics) are very expensive for
the "peoples car".
