How well do you like your shop?

2000 Volkswagen Jetta GLS TDi 4dr Sedan
The the car is in the shop at least
every other mo. nowadays, and parts are
outrageous. Repairs include rear
passenger window sensor, airbag, abs,
fuel door (all under 24K); maf(VW pd
1/2), glowplug solonoid, brakelight
switch--plus sth. is wrong with the
a/c, the chk. eng. light is on again &
the lift struts in the trunk are bad
($88 each!). (+ a $700 'tuneup' at
40K.) Contrast my used Neon--twice the
mileage and 1/4 the problems &
expense. I think the breakages
wouldn't be quite so bad if you could
get cheap parts, but you can only find
genuine VW stuff! I bought the Dsl.
partly b/c it would last forever--but I
can't afford to keep it!
Handling, mileage, styling, tons of
features and safety for the money, huge
