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.
