After the long wait for the Convertible
Bug. You would think that they could
get the top right! I mean afterall the
car is approaching 30K and yes its a
BUG! I purchased this car in April 03.
Since then the car has been in for
service 4 times. From the top
jamming/breaking, to the Transmition
and tiptronic failing. THis car has
been a nightmare. VW service and parts
is a total disaster. They dont even
carry as much as a cigarette lighter
that isnt on back order. It was so
exciting to get this car only to be a
great disappointment. you
might spend more time with a service
rental.. then your own vehicle.
I suggest you wait a WHILE before
buying this car and also research VW's
