Maybe VAG think to themselves that they like to reward people who use the cars correctly with a very respectable life-span on their vehicles, and for the people who don't/can't follow procedure they get an unreliable car that breaks often.

It's like a manufacturer forcing evolution on it's customers - retention of the smart, survival of the fittest and dissuading of the careless/stupid.

Just a supposition..

I would agree on this. VAG is way ahead of Ford in innovation, so there is reason why some errors are happening.
Though errors I saw on Ford's, especially in 90's are just ridiculous. Who can forget Escort and its wiring:)

Strong point of VW cars are interior finish that are superb for its class.Mechanically they are nothing special compared to other Euro cars

+1. VAG are cars for enthusiasts, not a boring commuting appliance.

BTW, I enjoy my boring commuting appliance immensely.

I still remember the adrenaline rush when my junky car would quit in the middle of nowhere when I was young.

Altough that may well be in US,Euro Fords are far better drivers cars then VW.New Mondeo,Focus even a Fiesta drives great.This cars are engineered in UK and Brits know thing or two about handling.Pre Focus cars where disaster except Cosworth cars.VAG does have edge in engines though.

We will see how that will go now when they departed with Mazda!

The current models have no connection to Mazda.

You are correct and the US models now days are the same as what europe gets. It will take a while before the general population realizes the differences in the new Fords.

A bit of topic but my good friend drives Graham Goode Focus St 2.5 Volvo engine and that thing is monster.Effortless speed of that thig is amazing on road and on track.Mk 5 and 6 Golf GTI are joke compared to Ford.Only fwd that may be faster is Renaultsport Megane 265.

That's why you buy a Dodge Dart instead of some motorized sauerkraut bowl.

As a counter to the negativity, a positive review...

My 80k mile (129k km) GTI hasn't given me any issues. I have spent $0 in repairs over the four years and nine months of ownership.

This is post of the year!
Or you want to say: That is why you buy FIAT Bravo which is sold in the U.S. as Dodge Dart?

I have 2010 CC with 2.0T never had ANY issues.
I used GC, M1 0W40, Castrol 5W40 (I got it when bought car) and now M1 5W30 ESP.
Engine did not burn drop of any of those oils, and I do drive very hard.

Good question. It should be obvious, and regardless of the cooling system, I would still give the thing an opportunity to cool down, just because that's what I've always done. Maybe VW/Audi just thinks it's too much of a hassle for customers and will turn them away from their turbo offerings.


On the 2.0T FSI engine, there is a built in turbo timer of sorts...it runs the coolant in reverse with an electric water pump to allow the turbo to cool down if it is too hot. I seriously doubt they would have dropped this from the newer models.
