- handles well on the roads, fast, pleasure to merge into highways
- quality is the worse! not reliable
Purchased As New
i've had this car for almost 3 years now and i'm having love/hate relationship with it. it handles very nice, very comfortable, fast and pleasure to drive. for a small car very spacious inside. can load a lot in the trunk. BUT not reliable. i've been taking care of it, through dealerships only, since my intention was to keep it as long as i can, but now i'm beginning to realize that i'm getting tired of all the issues. i already had my radio replaced, the new one's volume changes on its own. had fuel sensor replaced, since I stalled one day as i was driving, it was pretty scary, thank god i wasn't on a highway. last august my AC compressor blew up sending metal particles to the rest of the AC system. the whole thing needed to be replaced. apparently its a common problem, but VW refuses to recognize it and make it a recall. it hasn't been a year since my AC system was fixed, my AC compressor broke AGAIN!. needless to say I barely used AC since it was fixed in the fall and don't usually use it during winter. VW refuses to pay for the damage part, since I'm out of warranty at this point and they keep blaming everything on my mileage. i miss the part where AC compressor (that was barely used) has anything to do with mileage. i heard VWs are not reliable, but i fell in love with the body style of this car and how it handles, so i took my chances. now i'm paying for it.
