Default Hey VW Gurus

I'm looking for cars for my gf. I want her to get something interesting and fun to drive, but it also has to be reliable since I'm not always around to fix it.

I found this: http://milwaukee.craigslist.org/car/314494844.html

I know VW's are stereotyped for being unreliable. Was it also true for the MKI's?

$3500 is way too much for that car. The earlier vw's are much better than the 4th gen cars. mk3 cars are probably the most reliable of the bunch. I know of a $2800 vr6 in Dallas thats incredible for the price, and just scored new timing chains. Its worth looking at.

Alright well now she decided she doesn't like it. Her favorite part about it was the rabbit injection emblem.

She really likes an MX-3 in Chicago.

Thanks anyways
