Consumer Reports certainly is not over it. In fact, in the current April New Car issue, the 2002 1.8T
finds itself in the dreaded USED CARS TO AVOID list! Farging ice holes. :thumbdow:

Here is a quote from the online version of CR:

Volkswagen continued losing ground, with the Golf, Jetta, New Beetle, and four-cylinder Passat all worse than average. Many of the problems can be attributed to the ignition coils in the 1.8T engine shared by those cars.

Also, for 5 year old cars (like my '99) VW is at the bottom of the barrel with 138 problems per 100.

I love my car, I hate how much it costs me to maintain and in depreciation.
