Can't keep it on the road. Money Pit

2006 Volkswagen Golf GLS TDI 4dr Hatchback (1.9L 4cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


I bought this car used in 2010 from a vw dealer and I have been disappointed since.
I save a lot on fuel but I make up for that with the thousands of dollars I've sunk into it for repairs.
I'm probably up to over $10,000 in repairs and that is from thoroughly shopping around and getting the best deal.
Dealership sold me a "bumper to bumper" warranty which was voided the moment we took it for an oil change at a non VW dealership.

Best Features

I like the heated seats. It's necessary, as it takes 20 minutes for the car itself to heat up in the middle of winter. You can fit a lot in the car. It's very spacious. I like that VW is a respectable corporation.

Worst Features

I don't think I will ever by a vw again. I've been very disapointed. I can't sell it as I owe a lot more on the financing than I could sell it for.
