The "check engine" light came on at 3000 miles. The oxygen sensor was replaced.
The "check engine" light came on at 3100 miles. The other oxygen sensor was replaced.
At 27000 miles, just out of warranty, both oxygen sensors and the Mass Airflow Sensor went bad.
The heated mirrors and heated washer jets have never worked to my satisfaction, if, at all. The dealer can find nothing wrong.
The Monsoon stereo was replaced with a Sony unit because the CD changer quit.
The right hinge broke on the glove box door (I think the manual storage bin is too small and it puts stress on the door).
The headlight bulbs keep burning out.
There is a Horrible mildew smell when the a/c is off that will not go away until the fall.
Overall I have been happy with VW of America, the dealers and the car. I would buy another, but this time I'll take the extended warranty when offered.
The most offensive thing to me is that dang mildew smell. I had it with an Audi and I have it with this car.
Buy the one's made in Germany before they moved production to South America should you ever be looking for a used one.
