I kick myself everyday for buying this car. It was so
cute, that I didn't think before purchasing. It has
given me problem after problem. My interior is
peeling too. I have replace countless sensors. I
now have a EC... sensor going bad. My gas cap
release only periodically works. The paint chips
easily, however, it still looks really nice with red
colour wax. I needed a new throtle assembly last
month, $1000 installed. I have put $3000 in three
months. Time for new car, eh?
I just picked the car up last night, it had been in the
shop for 3 weeks. It drives fantastic. You have to
give it to the Deutsch, they design a true drivers
Mechanical. I think VW is depending too much on
the attractiveness of the car, versus using quality as
a selling agent.
