Bottom of third paragraph:
... you might think I'm nuts for wanting to invest in a car of questionable reliability ...

still a good review, but you always here that slight negative tone when it comes to the reliability issue
As a new VW owner and previous JapCar only driver, I'll admit I have the same reservations. You have to admit that Honda reliability spoils you and many VW mechanics I know warned me prior to my purchase. It's actually a running joke about when my first CEL comes. Honda's may have their own downsides but reliability isn't one of them. After years and years of never worrying about anything car related, it's worrisome to switch. HOWEVER, the GTI is worth whatever problems I may encounter since I'm having so much fun driving it. If this means a few trips to the dealer every once in a's worth it. It will take years for VW to rid itself of reliability issues...get used to it cause it isn't going away.

Including Acura, I have owned 8 Hondas. They may be the best car in the world but they aren't perfect either. They have been having transmission issues for the past several years.
yeah dude my friends mom went through 4 transmissions in a tl type s. ended up getting a new tl cuz of the lemon law
