Getting to the point where I have to choose another car.
Currently I drive a 2007 GT Sport TDI and for the most part I'm happy, awesome car, balancing performance with economy..... But I've had a few issues:
Passenger door refused to unlock - $500
Alleged wheel bearing noise - $600
Yet to be resolved, have had a couple of occasions when I've locked it and all 4 windows open to half way...WTF?
The wheel bearing noise did improve after bearing replacement but it seems the tyres may be the root of the problem, not surprising as it's so much fun to drive this car in it's torque zone which always spins the wheels... Any thoughts?
My wife puts this car's reliability on a par with her 1982 Holden Camira!!
I'm lusting after a Golf R but she says no way, I have to go for a low end Merc or Beemer, very nice of course but won't come close performance wise.
Should I engage a lawyer?????????????
My Wife has had a Nissan Pulsar from new since 2003 and the only issue has been a replacement battery!!!
Get the R with DCC. Set it on soft during the test drive and you'll be in.
Or what about don't wheelspin it!
Scoda? They have been said to have better build quality.
Do Scoda make an R equivalent? If yes I was thinking the same thing ^
Otherwise maybe the new Audi S3?

Quality on VW's not the greatest atm .... look at latest survey in the USA. Listen to your wife, a divorce will be more costly than any car.
And BTW, buy a new 320i BMW if you must buy anything non VW. 2.0 turbo and RWD. With a chip easy 200kw which will be more than a match for a R performance wise.
