"Handles well. Mileage is great. Expensive to maintain. Electrical system failed after three years. The warranty was weak. VW must have known what was coming. The car tends to nickle and dime you to death."
"Car does not have enough clearance. Speed bumps serious problem. Have punctured oil pan ($650), destroyed transmission ($7,000). turbo has blown twice, one under warranty the other $3,000. Dealers don't seem to know how to repair them. Savings on fuel far outweighed by this cars problems. Can only change oil at dealer ($60). Fuel filter ($75) needs to be changed every 50k mi. or it dies on the highway. VW customer service says no history of probleems witht he model. Am selling and buying a Kia."
