"Windows had some problems from day one. Would go to roll window up, would go up about half way and then go back down so you'd have to start over again.
About 4 years ago radio just stopped working.
About a year later the back window would start going down all by itself when it was a hot day.
2 years ago window regulator went on driver's side door had that replaced, that was about $600.
Window regulator on same side just went again. This time didn't want to pay another $600 and just had the window blocked up. I just want to get rid of this vehicle.
Will not purchase another VW. This was my 2nd. 1st one was great 1994 Golf. But had manual windows. No problems there.
I will say that I love the responsive handling of a VW. I will miss that. Company needs to do something about the electrical issues with the windows. I'm not the only one. I guess if it's not life-threatening it's not worth a recall."
"Bought in 2003 w/5K miles. Runs like a top. Lots of fun, easy to drive, parks on a dime. Heated leather seats are a luxurious touch. No power surge, disappointed that there was no "deal" on gas mileage, but it was not designed to be. No leaks, few sensor issues, wish I could keep it. Has 59K miles now, must sell it to leave country. It was my 4th VW, have always trusted them!"
