The owner of the vehicle then states that he claims that this is the highest mileage Volkswagen Virtus GT on YouTube, Instagram, and in India.

Problems faced in one year
Next up, he starts off with the negatives of the car. He prefaces that the car has been very reliable, and apart from a few minor issues, the car itself has not given them too much trouble. After this, he mentions that the first problem he faced with the sedan was that after a software update, his window would go up but not close and bounce back. For this, he went to the dealership, and they re-updated the software, and the car became normal.
Following this, the other major issue that he faced was that the car had a water leak from the air conditioner line that ran behind the pedals. He mentioned that the car’s driver footwell would fill with water. He states that this issue was caught due to a check airbag light on his car. He then, after discovering this issue, left his vehicle at the shop for 15 days. He added that in the meantime, he was driving a few of his other vehicles.
Modifications done to the car
Moving forward, the presenter asked the owner about the mods done to the car. He mentions that currently he has wrapped his original gray-colored Virtus GT in black and has added a Remus catback exhaust with full stainless steel piping. He adds that the car, apart from that, is mostly stock. He added that this system comes with a remote which allows opening up or closing the valves of the exhaust depending upon the button pressed.
