"I've had this car for about 10 years and in just about every one of those years, something goes wrong with it. It's my understanding that the first 2 years of the MK IV models are especially problematic, although most VW cars are anyway. Admittedly, I may have been stuck with a lemon; I've sunk more than the car's current value in misc. repairs over the years and am just about to head to the shop yet again. I love the way the car drives and handles, and it's just new enough to offer all the convenience features one would want. The build is solid (unlike the MK V models, which feel flimsy), the engine is torquey and somewhat quick and it's fun to drive, but the constant problems are a major downer. The only real complaint I have about the interior is that the seat gets uncomfortable on long trips. Problems are never anything major; the drivetrain is fine-it's generally what's tacked onto it: the water pump, power steering pump, clutch, etc. It also has random electrical gremlins, ie the engine light comes on, then goes off just as mysteriously. Sometimes opening the door or turning the dome light on causes a "boot lid open" warning to appear on the LCD dash readout. I don't mind normal maintenance, but when a car is this prone to problems, it basically makes me never want to buy another VW again, and I likely won't."
