Re: Really bad TT ownership experience

I'll comment on the privacy cover.  They NEVER fixed it (not on my car at
least) for any more than a few days or weeks.  Always came back and is here
to this day!  Always said some differences in material caused the
squeaking.  The wheel finish was a replace it fix.

Aren't the TT's built in a Hungary plant?  Don't know if there are any QC
issues there or not.
