Do not buy any VW!!!
Rattles everywhere: Dealer says it's a plastic cover (it's not).
Front bearing driver's side.
Wipers stopped working and are stuck in the up position.
Transmission is slipping in 2nd gear.
The smallest little rock puts a dent on that car.
A/C is not cold anymore.
And the cherry on top!!! The engine is drinking 3 litters of oil every 2500km!!! And the dealer says it's normal!!!
So where should I start...
Nice looking, all leather, electric, heated seats and mirrors, comfortable, and that is IT!!!
I have owned an 2000 Jetta VR6, which in my case was a great car, felt proper, and I still have an E36 M3, which I think was one of the best cars ever built.
But this thing is a real lemon. THANK GOD I took the extra warranty...
The metal sheets feel very thin; it gets bent very easily, and when you wash the car, if you just press a bit, the metal just buckles.
The transmission, when in Drive mode, always slips in second gear and gives a big kick.
And Sport mode is just worthless, and takes way, way too long to shift
The engine burns 3 liters of oil every 2500km, and my dealer told me I should add oil to the engine every time I put in gas, my answer was: LOL.
I'm sure that my engine will need a rebuild or be dead before reaching 100k, and the transmission shortly after.
I take very good care of all my cars and drive them gently, but VW this time made a big mistake, and I think it is costing them a lot of clients.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
