It was my first new(ish) car and I was pleased with it at the time I bought it.
Nothing major went wrong in the 12 months I owned it, it started first time every time, and it got me from A to B in a reasonable amount of comfort and time.
With the rear seats removed it also came in handy for shifting things like fridges, washing machines, like a mini estate really, but oh how I whinged about its whining little hairdryer under the bonnet, its lack of power, its tinny bodywork, its dodgy workmanship and its plastiky interior.
But worst of all is its handling, DON'T LET ANYBODY TELL YOU THAT THIS CAR HANDLES WELL, it will swap ends just like that, and did on many occasions. Corners that could be taken flat at 80mph in the old Jetta could only be tackled at around 40mph in the AX PATHETIC.
I got shot of the car after only 12 months and with 3 years finance left to pay, that's how desperately I wanted to be rid of it in the end.
