In the 10 months that I owned this car it was drivable maybe 2 months out of 10. The front axle snapped, a hole in the gas tank suddenly appeared, it ate oil like there was no tomorrow, electrical problems, smelled like exhaust fumes were coming into the cabin from the engine compartment to the point were I thought I would pass out. This car is a money pit!!!!

I have had to put way too much into this
car to repair manufacturer poor quality.
Sunrood twice. power window regulator.
clutch ignition switch. I hear from
other owners and mechanics that this is
common among VWs.
