The Coil Pack Story

ReviewIf you're looking to buy a Gti, or any
VW or Audi with the 1.8t or VR6
motor, then read on. Perhaps by
now you've heard about VW's little
problem with their ignition coilpacks.
Long story short, they used a third
party manufacturer and got burned.
Inferior parts, a HOWLING VW
customer base, and not enough of
them to fix the cars that are already
out there. Beware, 9k on mine, in the
shop 3x now, once for brake recall,
once for alarm going off mysteriously
at 3:00 am, and now once for 1 of 4
coilpacks. I wonder when the three
other little ticking time bombs are
going to go off ? For more info, go to
