Summary:

Definitely the better Volkswagen! It's cheaper than the original and offers the better value

Faults:

The radiator's washer broke at about 20,000 km which almost lead to a total desaster because the engine was running out of cooling liquid and the mechanics didn't find the flaw.

General Comments:

On the one hand, the car is really cute and trusty.

On the other hand the maintenance exceeds all limits!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
