Tell Me Something More about VW GTI in The Lounge Posted May 22, 2015 Thanks gentlemen. If I was again looking on paper, VW reliability while not stellar is not something which would bother me. I know three folks in person who have had horribly reliable Passat (2) and a Golf. That makes me anxious. Besides that the VW dealer here really doesn't give me a good vibe. Nevertheless, I am planning to keep an open mind and at least go and test drive it.
