ReviewThe car was brought brand new, driven with great care, never been in accident, oil changed every 4000-5000 miles. But it died twice and had to be towed in 3 years, same problem - the secondary air pump filled with water! The drive train was covered 100K / 10 years, but that pump was part of the "emission system" so I had to pay $750 each time to have that fixed. The second time it happened I traded it in for a new Toyota 2 days later and never will walk into a VW dealer again.
Best FeaturesGreat interior / exterior design.
Worst Features1st to 2nd gear (manual) is rough. Poor quality, poor workmanship. Irresponsible dealers refuse to honor a chronic design problem.
