I've had VWs and know lots who do. They have been reliable when new. It is not until 10 to 15 years that they start to consume money, IME.
Yes and yes. Drove across the US with it hitting all the stops (and repair centers).

Drove a mini and really liked it what a fun little car but the WRX was a lot more car for the same or less money and here in Colorado I can easily drive the WRX all year long.

Narrowed it down to the red and blue. Loved the red but the blue was just an amazing color and I was not sure if I would like the red long term.

Needed a new car since I am leaving my current company (after 15 years) and will no longer have a company car. A little treat to celebrate moving on
