I have had nothing but problems with this car! Between the car getting stuck in park, BOTH the driver's side and passenger's side windows falling off the track in the middle of winter in Chicago, the power steering and transmission leaking, the O2 and mass air flow sensor needing to be replaced, my glove box breaking, my passenger's side mirror light breaking, BOTH of my side mirrors rusting, my 6-disc CD changer skipping the CD when it's below freezing outside and now needing to replace my tranmission UNDER 80,000 MILES!! I have spent more money and time than you can dream of on repairs for this car. I am getting rid of the car.
It's a great looking car and I love the purple and red lights on the dash.
Some items were covered by the warranty and recalls, however nothing can replace the time I have spent waiting for my car to be repaired. Seems to me that the entire car should have been scrapped and recalled. I will never buy a VW again.
