Summary:

Great value for money

Faults:

Thermostat, since it happened on the road trip it was changed by local emergency repair shop. Fortunately it is the VW engine, the spare was the same for Golf and Seat which means easily available.

General Comments:

Best value for the money I owned. I traveled all around Central Eastern Europe with it (Poland, Austria, Slovenia, Bosnia), went on vacations with two bikes squeezed inn, apart from thermostat problem it never let me out.

Older models are now having lot of problems with rust, consumptions is getting worse by the age.

Nevertheless great car to own.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
