beautiful car, unreliable at best.
replaced instrument panel 2x,
headlight switch 2x, dimmer switch,
climatronic, radio didn't work for 1
month, died after sitting for 1 week
from bad battery, both headlights
burned out at the same time, broken
ashtray, bad mpg on 91 octane. great
in snow, classy and smart looking, but
with serious issues. thought a german-
built would be better, but sorely
mistaken. plus, dealer bordered on
incompetent, took at least 2x to fix
any problem, then tried to tell us 3
weeks before loaner car available.
nice try, we got an enterprise that
same day. after 20+ visits, service
advisor acted like it was first
nuclear powered heated seats, power
folding mirrors, all season ability,
best looking wagon out there w/classy
hipster look. we so so wish it would
have been reliable because we loved it
but couldn't face possibility of
monthly repairs after warranty expired.
make user maintenance possible,cant
replace bulbs w/o dealer intervention,
then dealer service is inaccessible
and expensive ($50 oil change? get
real). can't look at a curb w/o
damaging the wheels. great for leasing
for less time than the warranty
period, but don't buy VW.
