Purchased As Not Purchased
When I bought my VW GTI three years ago I thought it was the greatest thing since sliced bread (and said so on Yahoo Autos). The only thing I wished it had was AWD like my two previous cars (Subarus). Having lived with the car for 3 1/2 years and 100K+ miles, I have a little different perspective. The wet road traction (particularly snow) is bearable but be careful just the same. The bigger problem is durability. I haven't had any on-the-road breakdowns, but I have visited my dealer more times for this car than in my previous 20 years of car ownership (mostly Hondas, if only they made something like this), with total repair costs in the $4-5,000 range (including not one but two new A/C compressors). The dealership itself has been lukewarm to my problems. I would say if you feel like you have to have this car - and it has alot going for it in cheap performance - BY ALL MEANS sign up for the 100,000 mile extended warranty and factor it into the cost of the car. Otherwise, figure on trading it in at 2 to 3 years before more problems crop up.
