My girlfriend's dad has a 2001 Jetta Wolfburg edition. Lots of electrical issues.. two of them off the top of my head:

Driver's Side Heated Seat doesn't work anymore. The turn signal blinker will randomly make it's clicking noise.... you could be driving straight down the highway for 10 miles.. not move the steering wheel much, not use the signals, and it will just start clicking at you. Seems to be OK mechanically, however, and it does have a fair amount of pick up.

Does anyone else find it odd that they mark their tachometer in 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, etc x 100 rpms? Why do they feel it's necessary to make the driver carry the 0 while calculating the engine speed? Easy to get used to, but just odd.

My girlfriend is looking at picking up a 2001 VW Golf GL 2.0. Seems to be pretty good mechanically but there are quite a few glitches. The knob to move the power mirrors has broken off. The cup holders have broken ($125 CAD quoted for the part alone from a local VW dealer). The side mirrors have a blue tint finish that is cracking and peeling, making the mirrors unusable. Oh, and the fuel economy isn't rated very good for the car.. oh well..
