Hey, cute pics
Thats great how you showed a graph stating all below average or just plain bad for 6-8 years, and then good for the last two, which illustrates that if you buy a new VW you're probably ok for the first two years/12-24,000 miles... HOORAY!

These cars are horrible options because other vehicles in the same(or less) price range give you so much more in terms of reliability, cost-of-ownership, retaining value, and a thousand other things. If your choices were between the Flinstones car, a horse-and-carriage, or a Jetta, the Jetta would be the obvious choice. But when we have the options we do, buying a VW is close to retarded.

Whatever, you've heard a ton of people on this thread vouch for how bad these cars are mechanically, and any mechanic or person whos owned a Vdub for a couple of years will tell you the same, but whatever its your money and life do what you want. I'll still gladly pull my Subaru Impreza 2.5rs to the side of the road to help you when your 6-month old VW Touareg completely shuts down for no apparent reason in the middle of a snowstorm(like my buddy and I did last winter in Flagstaff,AZ for a stranded mom w/ her 2 young daughters in that exact predicament). Just my 2 cents, she probably would've been better off if she'd driven past the VW dealership 6 months before that day...

WHatev, I'm over this, have fun in your Jettas LOL
Lets get back to showing off our whips

Lol at u thinking ur winning this internet battle.

comeback seriously this is crazy you've posted 15 posts 90% of which are arguing this point I thnk this topic is dead Not a great way to welcome yourself to the forum.

and second off I wasn't arguing w/ ya at any point in this thread, I stayed nuetral and stated information I felt was relevant. BACK OFF. Period

we all have opinions here and can discuss them without taking it to a level too far. I feel this topic is hanging on a cliff...just my opinion

oh and for the record "cowboy kid" I never claimed that simply b/c one company has been around longer than another that means that they have a better product as your VW and SCOOBY example states. Seriously don't be a pompous ass just chill. I said that how long a company has been doing business HAS A BEARING on their product. It's common sense. I never said that the length of time dictates with a garauntee a superior product over a younger competitor

Twisting people's words to your favor is kinda like lame dude.. FAIL

Now I lay me down to bed, I pray the lord for pow to shred.
And if Its waist deep when I wake. Epic lines I vow to take.

ComeBack_Kid, we get it - you personally do not like audi and vw cars... :\

why the snotty attitude? we're discussing a difference of opinion. the fact that you can't do that in a civil manner, does the entire discussion a disservice.

nice, yea I heard they favor sti's over evo's over there too ( my buddy is big into those things)

I live in NY so the east coast is pretty much my stomping ground. Although I do get around I've got cousin's near Whistler, a business parnter in Portland, and couple friends in CO so once the season is full swinggin the trips will start

I need to move out there though I just want to put enough $ aside so when I do come to the west, I can relax for a year and not have to worry about things

on some cars with lover profile roof racks, there's not enough room between the rack and the roof to fit a snowboard (bindings down). the tilted rack solves that problem by creating more room.
