Probably one of the best economy cars ever built
Electronic temperature sensor was replaced shortly after I bought it at 145,000 miles.
A little water leaks into the interior when it rains a lot. Not bad.. but it smells a little musty sometimes.
The timing has needed adjustment a few times.
I only paid $800 for this car.
I have spent less than that total in repairs and maintenance.
It has been a most incredible value for me.
I cannot believe this car is 15 years old and has over 150K miles.
It has aged miraculously.
There are few other cars, including other VWs, of this vintage still on the road in such good condition.
It may never die.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
