2000 Volkswagen Lupo 3L TDi 1.2 turbo diesel


Good idea, but bad built


Front right bearing broken, Front left bearing changed by previous owner.

Plastics from front bumpers lost.

Six months to locate a protector of the cup-holder.

Gear box broken with 90.000 km. 3000 euros to repair it.

General Comments:

The car would be a bargain if it were more reliable. With 30 liters of gas-oil can do more than 600 km at normal speed.

With 4 years of use, the car need to be reviewed completely, nothing goes fine.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Finally, I have been pushed to sell it. Problems with ABS, gearbox and other minors ones. I have tried to resolve the ABS problem, but after 1250 Euros it doesn't work properly.

Finally I have to claim to Volkswagen not to create another car like this.
