"Honey, what key did you just use?" ...The question that prompted 3 months of waiting for a new lock cylinder, specifically keyed to my car. I didn't mind, though - I got to drive a *****in' (that's a positive
profane remark, not a negative
: think something equivalent to 'awesome') loaner Jetta all the while.
Oooo - I'd love to see a new Corrado / Sirocco / Audi Quattro offered up. I need a new 4th car. My daughter gets her mom's in 7 years - gotta plan ahead.
But it's (GTI) good on gas...lol...
Golf and the GTI's with the TSI engine are solid..I would never buy a Jetta or Passat.
When I was stationed in Germany I fell in love with them.
I haven't had any problems with mine,check fluids,tires,oil and filter change once a year.
Less than 5,000 miles since I only drive it during the Spring/Summer.But I've been driving it now with gas prices going up every other day.......................
