Welcome to the forum scottiedog. It seems like the Forte is destined to join the ranks of vehicles to own. I know what you mean about the upkeep of a VW. I had a GTI back in 1983 and all its repairs were expensive. Glad you decided to join us here.
Lol I just purchased a 6spd sx this past Saturday and when I'm wishing I'm driving it, I'm waxing and cleaning it up instead!!Welcome to the forum! Be ready for sleepless nights wishing you were driving instead of sleeping.
