I have a 2011 Subaru Outback Sport and I have had zero problems with the car @ 60k miles. I like it but I don’t love it. I bought it for the AWD and dependability and it has been very dependable but the AWD hasn’t been as revelatory as I thought it would be. I also think it may be a bit too big and heavy for my tastes. Which brings me to the VW GTI. I previously had a 2001 GTI and I had tons of problems with it. I felt like I was going into the shop every 6 months to fix something. In reviews of dependability of that specific model and year it appears to have atrocious ratings. But I loved the size, the power and the handling of it.
My question is….am i crazy to want to go back to VW? Maybe they are making GTIs better/more dependable now?
