anyone else been trouble-free

I know the problem threads are plenty and it's to be expected of any forum for any auto maker. People only post when there are issues. So I figure I'd post one about how my WK2 has been trouble free for me.

It has about 3000 miles on it so far. No failed 4WD, no roof leaks, no seized engine.. I'm in the mountains almost every weekend so it's seen some good snow, mud, rocks, and water crossings.. Yes, I've gotten stuck a few times, but I think it's more of driver error than anything. All in all, I'm pretty damn happy with my WK2.

I hope I didn't just jinx myself. lol.

For the most part, yes... no [major] complaints. Love the new Wk2.

Re: anyone else been trouble-free

Trouble free here. My kids car seats make a squeaking sound on the seats without the kids, and the kids find buckling their belts a little harder than our other cars, but those are minor.

My WK2 is a joy to drive.

Re: anyone else been trouble-free

Nothing to report beside the gear shift behaviour of the v6, but one just needs to get used to. Reading through the threads I am damn happy that I choosed not to take (1) air suspension, and (2) automatik liftgate. I guess less is more here, at least for me.

Just a light weight at 700 miles.

Perfect.
