2002 1.8T and just hit 52k miles, would have owned it 6 years in Feb 11, serviced every 5-6k / yearly, mine seems to have had most of the common faults including,
-Rear wiper jet thing not working, did fix but broke again.
-CD stuck in multiplayer
-Alternator went and had to be placed, though bit suspious how it failed as it only stopped working on the drive back from body shop after new front bumper fitted.
-Rear break piston thing sticking.
-Central front arm rest broke, been fixed.
A part from above care is mint, alloys could do with refurb and new breaks etc need shortly. I would get something newer but this car does everything I need and I dont really do the miles to justify somthing just sitting on the drive.
