Summary:

A positive experience + got a lot for the buck.

Faults:

Only minor "acceptable" faults up till now:

VW logo corroded (back) due to scratch from new.

Rear view mirror out of "alignment" when switching between day and night view.

Reduced brake power (!) in first few minutes when starting in cold rainy (or snowy) weather.

General Comments:

Relatively cheap "no nonsense" car - great for the buck.

Big fun to drive, very easy to handle, superb gear shift, good brakes (except when starting in cold rainy weather), good clutch (easy controllable), good steering, good headlights, low noise (even at highway speed).

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
