Iíve owned a Honda, two Nissans, a Chevy, a GMC, and the GTI. All except the GMC were bought new, and driven for 7-12 years each. GTI has been far and away the most reliable of the bunch.

GTI is almost 8 years old and has 83k miles on it: only issues have been the parking brake cables and a rear wheel bearing. Iím still on the original water pump and intake manifold. Havenít even done a carbon cleaning and the car runs great.

Iíll probably change the timing chain tensioner in the next year or so, just because. And plastic parts donít bother me at all: they make freaking jet airliners out of plastic these days.
