I am leaning toward purchasing a used avant for the wife and would like to
know opinions on years and transmissions and engines from people w/
experience. I have a mechanic telling me the 1.8T's are problematic. He also
states that the automatics are probably not the best choice for longevity,
but I would like to get an auto for her. Probably looking at something in
the 50K-80K range. Thanx in advance.
