Best car I've ever owned
Very little, actually. Most of my trips to the garage were for preventive maintenance.
The A/C compressor died around 140,000 miles.
The air intake had to be replaced.
The fuel pump relay died around 165,000 miles.
Most of the parts I replaced were hoses, belts, tyres; things that are subject to normal wear and tear.
Great car. Very reliable. I owned it for 11 years.
Very comfortable to drive. I owned 3 VW Dashers prior to this car. Good cars, Dashers, but this one beats them.
It is a bit more expensive to repair, though. Probably the best, most dependable car I've ever owned.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
