Alright - odd breakdown


I bougtt this car second hand and after 2 months the water pump broke, which resulted in some more damage and major repair cost. The dealer said the warranty was no good as it has not been serviced at 100% correct timing. Luckily for me the second hand dealer had a 6 months warranty and paid the repair.

General Comments:

It was O.k. My friend loves golf but it is not my cup of tea. I had a accident with it after 8 months and the insurance bought it, I considered myself lucky to get rid of it.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
