OK would buy another despite problems
Heater resistor failed-only works on max speed. Common fault on this model.
Front brake pad retaining bolts seized.
Engine mountings gone soft-replaced.
Speedo cable failed-replaced.
Sump gasket-leaking replaced.
CV joint covers perished & split replaced.
Reliable car despite all the above problems, but bear in mind the mileage!
Has always started, has good performance in a big car, & despite the problems a bond has grown between us.
I still think VW reputation is overrated (& getting worse) but being a home mecahnic there are many motor factor specializing in VW/Audi spares which allows for the cars to go on for ever!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
