Good with a great look, but has some issues
Clogged dust/pollen filter, replaced at dealer.
Strange noises coming from the AC fan, caused by incorrect mounting of the pollen filter, corrected by dealer at no cost.
Driver's window fell off into the door; the dealer told us that it was caused by a theft attempt.. but it is a common problem on these cars. Expensive repair, though.
Drivers rear view mirror ripped apart on a dumb parking accident. VERY expensive repair, fortunately covered by the insurance.
The turning signal sometimes doesn't blink, just stay lit; still to be fixed. I think is the relay module integrated to the hazard switch.
Unknown noises from inside the dashboard.
Despite some problems, it's a good, if not a great, car. It accelerates very quickly and corners like a dream.
The gear shifts feels very precise and the clutch is easy to modulate.
The braking power is very good, and the ABS system is really worthy.
The car feels very solid an well built, although its quite low, scratching the bottom is a very common thing when passing over speed bumps.
Having own a Vento earlier (Vento = Third generation Jetta), this car has greater mileage, maybe improved aerodynamics?.
Overall ergonomics of the cockpit is great, but the seats are quite uncomfortable for long trips: the lumbar support is a little exaggerated.
It has some quality issues, a little bit disapointing for a car tagged with such a high prize.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
