I still love my AirCoolers, and will probably own one till the day I die. But this has been my first, worst, and most definitely LAST experience with a watercooled VW.
Maybe it all started when it took them a week to deliver me my new car after I had paid for it..... or maybe it started when they screwed up and titled the car wrong (which still isnt fixed)....
I'm not real sure when it all started, but over the course of two years and countless warranty repairs, with the last one leaving me with no AC or radio for the month of August, is definitely where it needs to end.
While I have gotten some great VW gear, including a Shirt, 3 hats, a travel mug and a keychain, I would prefer my car not be a P.O.S. instead.....
It's black, with 27,000 miles. It has a new compressor, and a new Satellite radio.... wait...
While TECHNICALLY it does have a new radio, its the wrong one, and doesn't have satellite. Jeff at Browns has promised to order me the correct one, and have it soon. He let me keep the radio in my car this time while we wait for the new one. If you purchase it before the new radio comes in, I'll make sure you get it.
I'm not bagging on Brown's, or Jeff. He's been really helpful mostly. And anyways, they don't make them, they just fix them.
Anyways back to the car..... it's black, 27,000 miles, new Compressor, some new sensor on the passenger side for the airbag, some new sensor in the front of the car for the airbag, the fan blower works now, the hood release works now, and TECHNICALLY, it has a new satellite radio.
If you really want, I'll also throw in all the sweet VW gear I've accumulated through my many service visits. I've included pictures below.
Oh, some notes on the gear: the hat on the left is really worn out and is probably only worth putting on a trophy shelf somewhere, but the Jaguar one, and the one on the left are brand new, I haven't gotten to them yet.
The shirt is used, but well maintained. I wash it regularly and keep it stored in a drawer.
The keychain is broken, but it does say VW on it, so it would look good on the shelf next to the worn out hat.
And the mug pictured isn't the actual mug. My wife has the real one. The real one looks just like it though.... except it's metal.... and black.... and doesn't say "Just Say No to Drugs" on it.... it says "Volkswagen" on it.
