    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.

    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).

    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.
