I am the 1st and only owner of vehicle. The car has had problems early on and at least one recall for an ignition coil. The check engine light keeps coming on and won't go off. I have had several repairs made to remedy problem and it still will not go away. Dealers just keep trying different things. The low oil pressure light came on and I had to make a $500.00 repair to get the intake valves replaced. I had the O2 sensors replaced. Camshaft sensor and adjuster replaced. Pretty soon I will have had to replace the whole engine. I also had front brakes and rotors replaced. Repairs on this car are very pricey. I even had a problem with water pooling in the back on the floor. Very problematic.
It is fun to drive when it is running.
I think VW really needs to reevaluate the engine and the equipment they use. They need to look at the technical soundness of this vehicle.
