I know one thing, its a LOT cheaper to fix anything american versus something foreign. Ill stick with whats tried and true.
btw I got a friend with a vdub, he was sold on them till now. Biggest POS youll ever see. His moms passat had an engine oil sludge issue that vdub wouldnt warranty. He has had a ton of electrical issues with his gti. he wont buy another one once someone buys his.
itsa nice ass car, but its about as reliable as a pile of dogshit
