Excellent car, if it wasn't for this problem
On completing 90000Km the gearbox failed to go from 5th to 4th. A 70% garantee coverage from the dealer over a new gearbox (I payed for everything else - man-work too) took car e of the substitution (not without some smart remarks over my driving) and a new 2 year garantee - which has been extendedly used, since the gear box failed again at 105000Km, 118000Km and 120000Km. The dealer refuses to admit that this is a serious problem, and the imported redirects me to the dealer. Volkswagen in Germany doesn't even reply.
Repeated failure and dealer's poor service make me regret buying this car. I don't think I'll ever by in the Volkswagen Group again.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
