No longer trust VW
Throttle body seal (there is none) leaked oil into the electronics and caused many weeks of insufferable driving.
Poor visibility to B pillar has resulted in many near collisions.
Components, mainly plastic clips etc in the engine bay have failed, resulting in rattles and loose parts.
Seat components fell off.
The car is not 'good design'; the driving position is cramped, the controls are messy and poorly laid out, the seats cannot be located in a comfortable position, doors are heavy, boot storage is totally insufficient, headlights are inadequate, front body clearance is pathetic, engine is gutless, gear change is rubbery, visibility is hopeless.
I thought much of what is incorporated into cars these days was the result of many years of design effort and reliability testing. NOT SO THIS CAR!
If you're thinking of buying one of these, good luck!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
