Granted, this car was used and had 109,000 miles when I bought it, but it has been nothing but trouble. Had to have it after my cousin got one (and I got to drive it)! Both radiator fans broke within 2 weeks, $460. Multiple cylinder misfires. Some crazy coolant system-related engine code (P2182) that never goes away, had to have the thermostat and the thermostat sensor replaced, $400+. Strut mounts and CV boot joint need to be replaced. Transmission slips going into 4th. Finally found a good VW certified mechanic, but parts are expensive! Trying to sell the thing.
Interior lighting, overall appearance, sunroof/moonroof, heated seats, FUN TO DRIVE! It's the car I hate to love.
Everything electrical and mechanical. And seriously, the cupholders? How am I supposed to see the radio display or change CDs?
