My good friend for 17 years
Oil radiator leaked water into the circuit at 250.000Km.
Coils replaced at 170.000 Km.
Wears a bit, but not too bad for a 17 year old car.
Built like a tank. It handles everything you throw at it.
Had a nice performance when it was new, now it's lost a few HP, but still goes on.
Has a hard suspension, but then again, all VAG cars do.
Cheap to run and to maintain. Me and my other half have one each. Have to replace it soon, but just because it has only 2 seats (in Portugal, commercial cars - with just 2 seats - pay less taxes).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
