Review

Three transmissions and lots of aggravation later I've finally decided to give up. No more VWs for me. That's it. A car should be built to last and not give the kind of trouble that VWs give. I'm going to get a Honda for my next vehicle. VW service was expensive and the work was not good on a number of occasions.


Best Features

The best thing about VWs is their handling. If they were built better and the dealership was not so expensive they would still be only OK against the competition from Japan.


Worst Features

I don't think there's anything VW can do at this point to entice me back so I have no suggestions for them.

Review

This car is been the most unreliable
car. I bought it at 85k and put on 50k.
I have spent over $13k (not counting
gas and insurance) on it. It has
stranded us 4 times. Every time I fix
something expensive, I would think, now
it will be okay for a while. It is very
expen$ive to fix, and the same things
go wrong. The automatic transmission is
terrible and it has been replaced by VW
at 50k (before I owned it) and rebuilt
by VW at 110k while I owned it. The
transmission is so bad, there are no
used ones available. The fuel pump and
pre-pump have failed at least twice
each. The power windows are weak. I
could go on all night. Stay away from
this car!!!


Best Features

Interior roominess.


Worst Features

Simplify the car.
