At this point, nothing else can go wrong.
I have replace the mass air flow meter, $300, the cheap interior such as the glove box, $120, rear cup holders, $150, and the other cheap plastic items in the front, about $150.
I spent over 2600 when the A/C compressor, thermostat, A/C dryer and timing belt decided to go out all at the same time.
The car drinks oil like water, no oil leaks though. Then one day the trunk stopped opening for some reason, so I had to pay almost $200 for a plastic piece by the trunk.
I have replace the battery over 6 times, for some reason even when I put a brand new battery in my VW, it always comes back to the dealer with a bad cell. And right now the check engine light has come back on... and now it is the catalytic converter... Gratefully there is a recall on this, so I will be spending $0.
After replacing practically every major part on this car besides the engine, I got smarter and decided to buy the VW fix it yourself book at auto zone. And realized how ripped off VW customers are. I was told I would have to pay 200 for a fan to replace the cooling fans... and was pissed off to buy the fan for 30 dollars and find that all I had to do was remove 3 screws and a plug in!!! I am a girl and I DID IT MYSELF...
I am a college student and the last thing I need in a car is reliability issues. This is my first car and I love it despite the problems I HAVE EXPERIENCE.. BUT VW NEEDS TO GET THEIR ACT TOGETHER AND STOP SELLING BS... IF NOT I WILL TAKE MY SERVICES ELSEWHERE. THIS IS MY JR YR IN COLLEGE, I WILL BE BUYING A NEW CAR NEXT YR.
