Very unreliable car but fun to drive
Transmission differential broke down leaving me stranded, spark plug core blew out leaving me with little power (lucky I was in the city not on the highway) ; A/C compressor and evaporator stopped working; Engine needed piston ring replacement; shocks/bushings had to be replaced; jerky transmission throughout ownership; interior very worn.
I loved driving my 01 bora but the problems were too many to count. I had to sell within a year of buying it because it just couldn't be trusted and I didn't have enough time to fix all of the problems. I would consider buying another VW though because I really liked the way the car drove (when it drove:P)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
