"I've had this car since 11/05 and bought it new (it has 41k miles now). The only warranty item was the ABS sensor and our dealership took care of that very efficiently. It runs smoothly and is very comfortable especially for drivers over 6 ft. Nothing else bad has happened and I have enjoyed this car very much so far. The 4 motion system is excellent but uses some extra fuel. It needs higher octane fuel which can be fairly expensive. The scheduled maintenance is a must."

"Great car! Undoubtably the best car for the money in its class at the time of purchase. The 4WD blasted through Midwest winters. Very sturdy construction. Great accelleration and control in emergency situatons. Only complaint was relatively weak high and low beam headlights made night driving difficult. Had to slow down to avoid over-driving the headlights. Right leg a little crampped in driving position."

"After the manufacturer's 50,000 warranty, the following out-of-pocket expenses have incurred: 1) the trunk latch broke; 2) the driver-side passenger door would not open (twice); 3) two CV boots were punctured; 4) the alternator died; 5) the battery died; 6) the cross-over pipe exploded; 7) which caused the coolant reservoir to be replaced; 6) and the plastic garage opener cover (embedded in the driver-side) shade fell off. With all that said, this car is the money pit and VW has not been responsive because my 70,000 mile vehicle is past the manufacturer's warranty. Further, I have had all recommended services performed. The car is just a junker. Do NOT purchase this car because the maintenance is awful. Go with a Honda."
