This car was fun to drive until the relationship degenerated to the point I cringed ever time I had to start it, fearing something else would break.If I weren't able to complete most repairs myself, I'd probably have spent 5-8k in repairs.All the usual problems—bad ignition coils, 3 radios, window regulators,broken keyfob, multiple wheel bearings (as in 7 or 8 of them), various failed switches, broken glovebox door, broken center console latch (x5) & antenna. In addition, I had 3 airbag system component failures (which I couldn’t fix myself and cost $$$) and a wheel vibration issue that nobody could resolve. I gave up at 79k because I knew the plastic waterpump impeller was on borrowed time
The fact vwvortex has step by step repair instructions.This saved me thousands--literally. I'm so grateful people take the time to document repair procedures. The blue illuminated dash is a piece of art. The sheet metal body panels are very solid. Good paint job Upmarket look inside and out
Where do I start? Um, reliability? Ever heard of it VW? No wonder VW doesn't have customer loyalty. To add insult to injury, VW dealership repair costs are in the stratosphere--even compared to most other dealers. You would think they would cut you a little slack knowing you will be back.
