My 01 1.8 has been a real PITA. three brakes switches (before the recall) and a battery a year. now the $300.00 alternator, and the fuse in the radio has blown again. This will be my last Volkswagen product. CAll it "made in Mexico" or whatever it certainly speaks to a severe lack of engineering skills. A piss poor design. farfignugen(SP?)= Far-From Done-Right.
