Volkswagen supporter forever. I am on #3.
Problems: none yet (knock-on-wood). I have owned 3 Volkswagens and I loved each of them. Sometimes the parts are more difficult to get and more expensive to have replaced. They are such good quality that it is rare you need to. However, some accidents are unavoidable. Performance: amazing! So much power for a vehicle with decent gas mileage. So easy and fun to drive. Reliability: coming from someone who has been in multiple accidents, I feel much safer in Volkswagens. It makes a huge difference when you are in a strong, well-built care. I rely on mine for safety. Comfort: wow. My Tiguan might have some upgrades (not sure of details) but I think it is very spacious for a small SUV! Plus, the back seats can convert into a bed/lay flat. Great for car camping. Features: like I said, mine might have some upgrades. I am not sure what comes standard. I have a huge moon roof unlike any cars I have been in. The stock sound systems are far above average and have great sound/base. Bluetooth and touch screen display. Controls on the steering wheel. And one more favorite: awesome stock rims. Nothing small of cheap looking. This car (and my other two Jetta's) came fully loaded!. In my opinion.
