I thought this car was absolutely wonderful. Which it was. Then My friend told me wait until you have reached 30,000 miles. I blew it off and was like no Volkswagens are reputable cars.. (for being crap).
All well until:
20,000 - battery died.. No reason. My dealership says it's standard. (oh OK standard.. that should've been in the contract)
25,000 - Radio stopped working... No reason. Of course dealership says its standard. (well yet another amendment to that contract.)
25,000 - brake lights not working... and yes folks this is standard.
26,000 - 40,000 - at least 4 times a year my rear lights have to get replaced. But don't worry yet another standard failure for VW's.
41,000 - My car dies while I drive it. It shuts off and turns on at will when I drive. I've had a few close calls with death. My dealership says they have no idea and think I'm fabricating the story.
42,000 - My cars power system shuts off and turns on. My transmission will soon begin getting affected by this. I've been in almost 6 fatal accidents because of this problem.
Well here I am..I've almost had a few fatal accidents on the highway due to this POS. I called my dealership yesterday and warned them that if I, or my family are injured due to this problem. I will slap VW of North America, VW worldwide, the dealership, and all managers involved in my cars mechanical inspection with the biggest law suit possible. I'm sick of these huge corporation making a mockery of consumers, not only a mockery, but this is a fatal situation.
