//caliber\\ said:From what I know the MKV GTI has been out in Europe for almost two years already? How come it took so long for VW to bring it to the US :iono: Will Europeans get a model refresh before the US?
loft said:Yea it always seemed strange to me that the car has such a lead time in the US. But maybee its because its been done like that for a while, and now that VW is in the habit its hard to break it because the mk4 is still not that old for us. Who knows, i'd like to know the answer too.
drunkenmaster said:I don't know but I'm kind of glad that it's been in the rest of the world for a few years now cause this means we won't be getting a first year model really. All the major problems will have been solved (hopefully :wink: )
//caliber\\ said:That would makes sense cuz the only difference between the US and european version is supposed to be the suspension height of the car so the cars we get should be pretty solid.
MAlby7 said:I hope your theory is dead on. This is sort of like the same situation with my Ford Focus. When I got it I was thinking, hey in Europe they haven't had any problems whatsoever and everyone loves them. For sure this will be ok to drive here. 7 recalls and 42 visits to the dealer later I learned my lesson. The only difference between the golf and focus is that the North American Foci are built in Mexico, hence the reliability problems.
hipstomper said:are you serious about the 7 recalls and 42 visits !?:eyebulge: :eyebulge: man I hope the Golf is more reliable than that :wink:
MAlby7 said:Unfortunately I am. There were 34 visits in the first 30 months. I got to know my Ford Dealer very well.:thumbdown:
