Re: Looks like the press is finally catching on to the myth of...

I will have to agree. German cars and European cars in general, are best leased, providing a lease is doable as you consider your annual mileage. After three years, or less, Volkswagens are money pits. Transmission and engine will last until the end of time, but every other part will fail at the most inopportune time.
I have owned two VW's in the last 10 years. Never again. My repairs on an annual basis averaged 125 a month. And some of the work I did myself! At sticker pice, VW's are a nice ride. Total cost of ownership is a different matter.
