Great Drive! But I got a lemon
Rear shocks lost all the oil.
Gel filled engine mounts collapsed.
Front strut mounts failed.
Front suspension bushes torn to bits.
Bad transmission oil leak x 2
Front electric window failed.
Heater system would deposit all the engine cooling water on the floor on the passengers side.
ABS light fault.
Excellent performance and driving characteristics, usual large boot. Smart looking vehicle and attractive trim. However heavy on fuel use and let down by the constant significant problems that were expensive to fix. The cooling system one was fixed by no longer having a heater. Bad idea not to have a transmission dipstick if your transmission leaks! Wished I never decided to change from the Mk2 Jetta to the Vento.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
