I've owned this car for over 2 years and it is in constant need of repair. The AC has went out twice, the Coils have had to be replaced, the front axles replaced due to the boots cracking and now the infamous "Oil Sludge" problem which VW says they will not cover even though all but 3 oil changes were completed at the dealer and I have provided them copies of the other 3 receipts. After looking online at all the other 05' 1.8 turbo owners with the same problem, it would appear that the issue was not resolved from 04' to 05'. Needless to say I will never by a VW again. What can we as a group do to address this issue with VW?
Stand behind your product and address the faulty engine problems. Extend your recall to all 1.8 Turbo engines as you have obviously not corrected the issue from 04' to 05'.
