There are bad apples in every bunch from every manufacturer. I just traded in my 99.5 Jetta after exactly 1 year and 23k miles for a 01 GTI VR6, my 5th VW.

I also have a '00 V40 which has been in the shop twice for a check engine light. No big deal but that's two more times in the shop than my old Jetta ever was (0) in the same period of time. My Volvo also had the most annoying metallic rattle coming from under and behind the center console. I fixed this myself twice, finally having to put some foam in there to stop it for good.

I WILL be trading in this car for the '02 VW Passat wagon in April. I am very, very disappointed in the build and feel of this Ford owned Mitsubishi/Volvo project. VWs just feel sooo good. Volvo only has snob value, which I fell for. I'll never stray again!
