'02 Golf, '66 Vespa
I just did mine this summer and it cost me under $500. Just buy a refurbished unit and do it yourself and it becomes quite reasonable. I also replaced the radiator, but other than that my 220k mile car hasn't needed any attention since the suspension was refreshed over a year ago. They're affordable cars to own.This has long been a debate before about the TCO. Some say it's no more expensive than a MKIV. I don't no the accuracy behind it, but I have a lady who owns one and she needed a steering rack for it, cost was $850 for the rack plus labor of $250.
