Good car, reliability not good

ReviewMy vehicle currently has over 100,000 miles. Initial impressions during the first 25000 miles were very positive. The car handled decently, the ride was firm, the V6 engine had smooth power. Gas mileage has been constant at an OK 22 combined city/highway. Subsequent impressions were not as good due to overall reliability problems. I could cut and paste the problems mentioned in other reviews/forums, such as leaking cylinder head gaskets, leaking cam seals, tie rod replacement, new ABS module, control arm joints, and a host of various other problems. Repair bills over the years were exorbitant, much of which was due to the high cost of replacement parts.
Best FeaturesNice exterior design, decent handling, smooth power, fun to drive, quality interior, good sound system, very good build quality
Worst FeaturesVW must improve long term reliability to a point where it meets or exceeds its competitors.
