17 years and 8 vehicles later, I’ve finally found my biggest regret: ‘20 R-Line. These things are designed so poorly, through and through, I can’t understand how they are still a company. Changed out the speakers and added an amp to the head unit because the stock audio is pathetic. I had better sound in ‘93 Camry than this thing. Anyway, DON’T MODIFY ANYTHING. It appears as though VW designs their vehicles to allow as much rain as possible into every corner and crevice, and if you change out the speakers, it will pour right through. Fought with the dealer and several people in corporate, all said I voided warranty for swapping out speakers and it would minimally be $5k to dismantle and rid the interior of water damage. Yet, they were stumped when I asked them to think logically about how water could possibly build up so much inside a door that it came through a speaker. I’ve talked to every single person in the automotive and car audio world and not one has ever heard of water coming through speakers. Beyond this BS, the windshield has already cracked twice, the rotors build massive corrosion with the slightest hint of humidity, the “safety” system has slammed the brakes to the floor on 7 different occasions where I was in no danger whatsoever, and I haven’t gotten over 24mpg at any given time, even on straight highway. I’m sure I could go on for another 3,000 words, but you probably stopped reading halfway through. Anyway, that’s my story. Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk.
