When I first got my TDI, I loved it,
raved about it. The mileage was great
and the car looked sharp. Now it's a
different story. I've sunk close to
$2000 into it in the last 18 months.
Everything from an engine temp sensor,
to glow plug relay, to brakes. Not to
mention the $100 oil changes. I've
even had the rear cup holder replaced.
Now the temp gauge isn't working and
the "check engine" light is on again.
I'm sure that will be another $300. I
also found out this past weekend while
it was in the shop, that one of the
glow plugs is seized up and can't be
removed. I will never buy a VW again.
Mileage, dash, exterior styling, trunk
It all needs fixing. In addition to
above, the cup holders are next to
worthless, the seats are uncomfortable
(not to mention the lint), the shifter
is notchy, and the paint will chip if
you look at it wrong.
