Why I will never by another VW again

2002 Volkswagen Passat GLS 1.8T 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5A)

Review

I didn't review this site before purchasing my 2002 1.8t Passat Wagon (really sorry I didn't because this review will sound like many of the others).The car does look sweet,turbo was pretty awesome,& the car is stacked w/ features (sunroof, pw, pl, tiptronic, cruise, lots of space). We purchased the car with under 80000 miles. Less than 1 month into owning it the a/c compressor/clutch quit, the glove box handle fell off, a bracket under car came off, the heat quit working, the tiptronic would not switch from manual to automatic, instrument panel was 50% dim, transmission started to make a grinding noise when decelerating, 2 vent slats for the a/c fell out & paint started to peel frm inside

Favorite Features

Sunroof, acceleration, and getting rid of it! We had it for less than 3 months and only put 3000 miles on it; car had about 81,000 before trading it for a Honda Accord

Suggested Improvements

Improve the reliability...it is RIDICULOUS that a car would have SO MANY problems in such little time and under 100,000 miles. Not to mention repairs of all the items listed above were going to be around $3000 (about $1400 just for the a/c), this car was not worth the money or the time we had it
