I bought this car just 3 months ago and the love of the car died very quickly. 2 weeks after having the car the check engine light came on and it needed a thermostat and temperature sensor ($600), then a few weeks after that the oil light comes on, can't figure out why, now 3 months later the moon roof has decided to pop up and down all on its own, its creepy, I have just gotten to the point that I laugh at the car when one of the lights comes on. I love the look of the car and its fun to drive, people wave at you and smile when they see you but Volkswagen did a horrible job at making this vehicle and really makes German engineering look bad. I will never buy another Volkswagen product again
The color (Cyber Green), Heated Seats, Rain sensing wipers, the unique flower vase. It has alot more interior room than you would expect. Love the purple interior lights. The cupholders sway to the side to fit larger drinks. The 1.8 turbo is a spunky little car, surprising power.
Pretty much everything, I have read the headlights are a pain to change, thankfully I haven't had to do that yet.
Hahaha too bad they aren't German. Next time you take another part off your car, look closely for the lovely "Made in Mexico" label. There's your whole explanation for why these fall apart from the inside out.
