As other reviews state, this is a fun, peppy little car to drive. Gas mileage is exceptional. Great for commuting, road trips etc. An enjoyable vehicle to own. But.... the radio continues to cut in and out, so no music, bluetooth, back-up camera or Apple car play. Cannot stay in touch business-wise when it’s off. The radio was reflashed by the dealer, but issues continue. Another reviewer spoke of front end issues. This one, too. Constant creaking noise when going over bumps or around corners. As well, The brakes have squealed since week 2. The car is now 2 years, 3 months old and has 45000 kilometers or 28000 miles. Dealer is not interested in searching for solutions. First VW, and last VW.
Wish the Radio Worked
This would be my dream car if only the radio worked. Been to 2 dealerships in NC who both said that the radio will never work because of the car’s low center of gravity and the fact that the antenna is in the front windshield. Why then does VW include a radio in the car if they know it won’t work? Also, if VW Corp and the dealerships know the radio will never work, why don’t they inform the consumer of this before they buy the car? Told my mechanic what the VW dealers told me and he said that was the most ridiculous thing he’s ever heard!
It was my wife’s dream vehicle, and when it was brought from the back she was in love I am glad that she is enjoying this little token.
