Summary:

The best hatchback

Faults:

The Bad:

Inside the door, the fabric is wrinkled as well as the roof.

Check light comes on, but with an acceleration the light turns off.

Consumption is a bit high, and there's a lack of power.

General Comments:

The best hatchback.

Comfortable, quiet.. Cluster lights are beautiful.

Great trunk space.

Excellent dash materials.

I recommend VW, but keep an honest mechanic, and you should thoroughly review the electronics, because when they fail...

No comparison with my previous Corolla. VW's best car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
