Today got a low brake fluid message, checked under the car, the tranny's covered in brake fluid... SOB!<p>Obviously no warranty, so I'm fudged. I've been trying to take my issues lightly, but since I'm venting here it goes....<p>1st: alignment...discovered one of my control arm bushings is shot, so that needs replacing.<br>2nd: Struts are shot, weeping fluid<br>3rd: small radiator leak<br>4th: cogged pcv system...already cleared though.<br>5th: excessive oil consumption...still trying to diagnose(not related to pcv system) hoping it's not a bad hg, or cracked ringlands<br>6th: The final straw...throw out bearing or slave? failure which means a clutch job as well.<p><br>I bought this car for pretty cheap, so I expected some things needed to be replaced. But now I realize the money I saved on this car is actually less than the cost of the replacement parts alone.<p>This blows big time. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>I guess that's what I get for buying a used performance car. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I'll be going for a joy ride now and see how well this car handles cliff dives <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">
