I hope this isn't too far off topic, but somebody asked. My '85 Golf was
trouble from the day I bought it. In the 4 years I owned it I had problems
with the transmission, the brakes, the suspension, the cooling system, and
the AC never really worked. The straw that broke the camel's back was the
unexplainable black smoke coming from the dashboard. Probably electrical,
but I never found out since I traded it in the day THAT problem started. I
liked driving my Golf, but not owning it.
On the other hand, the 90 Integra I traded it in on has only required
routine maintenance (knock wood). Same with my '93 Audi 90. I think
Audi's are great cars (and I test drove 12 different cars before I made my
decision). Mine runs great, is very comfortable, handles well, and is
built like a tank. I can handle a VW financial stake in Audi, and a few
parts in common, but If I thought my Audi had the "soul of a VW" I wouldn't
have bought it.
Sorry VW fans.
