Love to drive it, but tired of problems.

Review
When I bought this car, it had about 60ish thousand miles on it. Has transmission problems, doesn't like to go in reverse or it slips around the third gear. (Automatic). And VW wants 3k+ for a replacement! Even rebuilt ones online are over 1k. Replaced the water pump twice, the timing belt once. The headlights have both gone out, and take forever to replace. We have done all of the work at home, to save money, and it is a pain to do work on it, things are hard to get to. Car burns oil Recently replaced the starter and battery. I love driving this car, I can take corners at 45+ with no problem. The CD player it came with never worked, and my seat heater stopped working- but it's a sturdy car
Favorite Features
Stability for sure. The speakers are also nice. Has a strong feel to it.
Suggested Improvements
Mostly mechanical, I've heard a lot of cases of the transmissions going out on these and they are too high to replace.
