The reliability and the reputation the company has is great.

This car is great on gas, very peppy, reliable, gets me places in downtown and kids love it. I would recommend it to friends and family.

- Bryan R

It is not as expensive to fix as everyone tries to claim.

It handles really well on the road, it takes good care of you if you do the same to it. It is super comfortable and fun to drive.

- Tara N

It is a sports car, fast, and reliable.

My car has great gas mileage. I also like how well the car drives. My car is fast. I dislike a few designs inside of the car.

Safety Recalls (1)

Exterior Lighting > Headlights Sep 17, 2007
Report Receipt Date:
Sep 17, 2007
NHTSA Campaign:
07V442000
Summary:
CERTAIN VEHICLES FAIL TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 108, "LAMPS, REFLECTIVE DEVICES, AND ASSOCIATED EQUIPMENT." SOME VEHICLES MAY NOT HAVE HAD A REQUIRED CAP INSTALLED WHICH DISABLES THE HEADLIGHT HORIZONTAL AIM AND SOME VEHICLES MAY CONTAIN A CAP THAT DISABLES THE VERTICAL AIMING SCREW.
Consequence:
INAPPROPRIATE, NON-STANDARD LIGHTING COULD REDUCE VISIBILITY OF VEHICLES AND INCREASE THE POTENTIAL FOR A CRASH.
Remedy:
DEALERS WILL INSPECT FOR THE PRESENCE OF A CAP IN THE SOCKET OF THE LOW BEAM HORIZONTAL AIMING SCREW AND INSTALL ONE IF MISSING, AND INSPECT FOR THE PRESENCE OF A CAP IN THE SOCKET OF THE VERTICAL AIMING SCREW AND IF PRESENT, THE CAP WILL BE REMOVED. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR ABOUT OCTOBER 31, 2007. OWNERS MAY CONTACT VW AT 1-800-822-8987.
