hi in germany every car has to go all 2 years to the "TÜV". That´s a governent agency which checks the car if it´s safe and traffic worthy. well and my 19 yrs old rabbit does it again. the defects were been: -one of four window washer blast pipes cogged -rubbers from the exhaust blowy -Pluspole cover from the battery were missing. and 1 reflector were blind. I replaced both. Yes. Golf/Rabbit. The best cars ever made.
