I am sold on the GTI. For the price and performance and how it feels to drive you can't beat it. Unfortunetly I need my father to co sign for the loan. He does't care about the performance and handling. He wants to know about reliability and repairs needed over time. I am looking at a baseline model Manual with the only option being the Ipod hook up. Please help me make this purchase. I need reviews of the MKV with miles on them. not 5k. like 20k+. Thank you. PS/ the reason for this is that J.D. Power gave the GTI a not so great mechanical reliability rating as for other things.
