Things that have gone wrong in the five years I've had her are NONE.
The front bumper got wedged under a low grass verge, & when reversing, it was ripped off its mounting/brackets. I had this repaired at a local garage for a minimal fee.
I replaced the interior two years ago for a leather one, and now have extremely comfortable seats, which have heaters in them. These are operated by a switch mounted in the dash above the cup holders. "Bum Warmers" they are collectively known as :-).
I also had spot lights fitted below the bumper, and had the lights switch upgraded, so that I could use them.
Where the original switch had 'one pull out' for the rear fog light, it now has two 'pull outs' for operating the rear fog light, whereas one 'pull out' operates the front spot lights.
Like the Golf I had previously, I love the colours in the car. The blue/red illumination is very 'settling' and comfortable.
I also upgraded the radio/cassette to a USB WMA/MP3 CD unit, which also lights up blue/red.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
