For a auto enthusiest the vw always has something to offer. They handle well and aftermarket support is good.
I have just seen too many people with no machanical knowledge get in way over their head because someone told them to buy a vw.
I have seen too many broken timing belts, bent valves and empty $500 resonators to have any love for them. Maybe the newest ones are more reliable but Im sure the price for parts is just as scary.
I do love a aircooled vw though.
