So many problems...so little time

2003 Volkswagen GTI 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


I will never buy a Volkswagen again!
Let me state that I have ALWAYS had my
car serviced at the proper intervals
and only at Volkswagen. I have had the
window regulators break 3 times, the
ignition coils go out twice, and the
battery blew up. Also, the car
rattles so much that it sounds like it
was made in the 70's. I have had my
car 13 months and have had to have the
car towed 4 times. The sad thing
is...VW isn't even apologetic about
their quality problems. Potential VW
buyers beware, don't buy a VW unless
you have all the time in the world and
love sitting in a cold, emotionless,
flourescent lit VW dealership for
hours on end!
