lol has been frequently...
what subforum are you in usually? my SN is the same on there as here.
mk3 forum is brutal
where will i get my fix of ridiculously dropped mid nineties econo eurocrapboxes with stretched tires and faulty wires?
lol i never got the whole VW's have electrical problems. never had a problem i would attribute to wiring. maybe a sensor goes bad or something.
new england regionals ftw.
oh and Corrado forums
The thing is, in other cars the sensors usually don't go bad.
Anyway, I haven't had wiring problems either; it's all been sensors and rubber parts. (Unless you count the wire ribbon inside my left-side control stalk, which I need to replace one of these years.)
The big problem is that when something breaks on a VW, it costs $1000 to replace the broken part and another $1000 to fix the collateral damage.
i just replaced the engine in my car for 500 bucks
rebuilt vr6 engine block and recently redone head - $500
labor - $0
You got a busted lemon, stop spreading the hate. My GTI hasn't had any irregular problems for a car of it's age (6 years, 80k miles).
My G60 is in for a port and polish now.
Less than 200$
It's not a lemon; comparing notes with hundreds of other B5 owners, the maintenance I've had is about on-par, I just bitch about it more than most.
Besides, what good is a car company that can't hit 6-sigma quality control? People don't go through enough cars in their lifetimes to be able to risk buying more than one car from a company that can't guarantee every car will be just as good as the one before it.
dirt cheap repairs and mods are just a couple of the reasons i wanna go back to oldschool veedubs. i miss my rabbits
they are so easy to work on too.
