Review

I just bought this bug with 24K miles on it. teh previous owner kept excellent care of it. I've had it a month and the window regulator needs replacement...$317.00. As I look through the records, she had some things fixed which weren't mentioned...sunglass case didn't close, windshield leaked, passenger mirror didn't work. The transmission (auto) takes 2-3 seconds to grab, which the dealership says is normal. Difficult to believe. Car is a lot of fun to drive, had a Civic before. BUT, not sure if it is built very well...my Honda went 150K with only one 'mechanical repair' besides maintenance. Next time, I'll buy a HONDA!

Review

Oof the greatest disappointments I have ever had with a vehicle. 1 alternator, 1 brake master cylinder, 2 power steering pumps, 2 fuel tank senders, 2 window switches, 1 radio, 1 lower radiator hose, 2 cooling fans and 1 fuel door actuator and oil consumption of 1 quart every 3000 miles which, according to VW, is within specification for a car with 22k miles on the clock. The only saving grace is that the lease is up in a few months. Kurt
