Summary:

Don't hesitate, buy one!

Faults:

Gear change controller changed under warranty at 40K.

Loose door panel bolt.

The gear change can be a bit juddery from 1st to 2nd sometimes, so dealer said the clutch will be changed also under warranty.

General Comments:

Best car I ever owned! Perfect drive, precise VW handling and very economical on diesel. I do 80% motorway and 20% urban mix, and get at least 20km/ltr (or 56 imperial MPG), which is great for a saloon.

Automatic air-con version on this car is fiddly and unclear, with very small and similar buttons; something that doesn't add to driver safety.

Cruise control is excellent.

Huge trunk and incredibly more practical than a 5-door Golf. Can seat 5 people comfortably, including all their luggage and the kitchen sink!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
