Long story short; I used to own a company and drove MB as a rule. Now things are very different so I still wanted German and went with a VW. The top part of the engine has been rebuilt twice as the timing chain broke twice. Now I was a LITTLE late on a couple oil changes; like 2k miles, not THAT big of a deal (for other cars). Now with 78k miles the car is starting to tick again and it is under 3 years old. Now I have driven a lot of miles but drive (slow) due to some points I drive the speed limit. Take off NORMAL, stop normal, no driving fast or racing. Also because funds are tight I need to get the most out of the gas. I average (for the past 8k miles) 23.7 mpg.
Car has a nice design (looks).
Build a quality car like VW has always been known for. I picked this car because I feel on hard times and wanted the highest quality I could get for the little I could spend (and the car is not cheap). In return I got something that keeps breaking, is now out of warranty and I can't pay to fix
