Greetings! I'm the newest kid on the block with a leased 2019 SEL that I'm currently in love with. This is my first official dip into anything german (and I'm 40 hah). Been a honda guy for a while. Still am with my other car, was going to go with a Civic EX-L but just fell in love with the Jetta dash and that warranty. I also wanted to mix it up (midlife maybe? So here's a few questions:
1. Stepping into a world that I'm unfamiliar with, I'm wondering, how long do these cars go for without any major repairs? Also what about longevity in general? Think I can get 200k+ miles if I go the distance with my Jetta? I know I'm asking a very bias crowd here, but I figure you kind people would give me the unfiltered truth.
2. I've also been reading that repairs on German cars are waaaaaayy more expensive then others. Is this true? I mean after my warranty should I start to get nervous?
3. Last question, like most of you, I love my speed and slapping a chip on this rig, well, it's going to happen eventually. Do you think that plays a significant impact on longevity?
Thanks to who ever replies and screw you to the ones who don't! Hah kiddin'.
