I like the inspiration behind the car, but it's been really poorly executed and assembled
Power window regulators broken (2)
Passenger rear window actuator inoperable.
Passenger side mirror adjustment inoperable.
Coolant fitting on side of engine block gasket worn and leaking.
Front shock mounts worn out.
Front right wheel bearing worn out.
Driver seat cushion has gone flat.
Spontaneous on/off on the security system (twice).
A/C duct seals worn and blowing humid air into CD player resulting in skipping and who knows what else.
The car's drive train and engine seem to be reasonably reliable and the front end (ball joints, CV joints, tie rod ends) has ben tight and running fine since the day I bought it. But all of the stupid little things going wrong drove me to trade the thing in for some other brand. When I had to drive home in stop and go traffic with the horn going off spontaneously and inoperable windows I knew that this was it. I'm done with Volkswagen until their quality numbers get better.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
