"This car was not what I was expecting when I first purchased it. There has been constant problems with the car. For example I've had to replace the Brake Light Switch 5 times. Also just got another recall notice on for the brake light switch. Also since 2002 I've the catalytic convertor replaced at 50k. Twice on the water pump because the plastic propellers broke off and the second the pieces went into my coolant system. Also at the Coolant Fan Module replaced. The transmission had to be replaced at 90k miles. I was soooo not expecting to happen. The a/c no longer works and the metal bar holding the seat in place on the driver side is broken. With that the seat now rocks. The routine maintance is highly expensive. Which I can no longer afford after shelling out nearly $4000 in repairs within 2 months apart. It was my dream but now I dream of unloading it."

"I purchased my VW TDI new in 2000, it has been the best car that I have ever owned. If you can find one, buy the TDI, 50 miles to the gallon is a good deal these days."
