Big improvement on the mk3
The DPF filter triggered the engine light, as it needs to do a regen every 3-400 miles, and the car is mainly used round town, so it needs a thrash every now and then.
Having owned an 05 plate TDCi 130 for 2 years, I have to say this new model is much nicer to drive, and the seats are more comfortable.
It is better on fuel, and they are supposed to have less reliability issues with injectors and turbos, which seem to plague the old shape. The brakes are also a big improvement, as they were terrible on the old one.
The official fuel figures of 44 urban and 61 extra urban are not going to happen; more like 38 and 50.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
