Just don't do it!
I owned this car from new, for just over 2 years of stressful ownership. It has had far too many quality issues:
Dealer service: Shocking!
VW customer service: Shocking!
Vehicle in general: The most expensive and most disappointing vehicle I have ever owned!
Water trapping in the door well, spilling out onto your shoes when the door was opened.
Numerous roof issues; rattles, failures to open correctly, squeaking sunroof.
“Key not found” issues. The vehicle intermittently does not recognise the key and will not start.
Clutch squeal after 15K miles.
Vehicle unexpectedly stopping whilst driving and refusing to start for over 10 minutes.
Revolving noise evident from the rear of the vehicle when driving.
Lights intermittently not working.
Just before I disposed of it, the air conditioning started making squeaking noises.
The design looks very appealing (retractable roof and large sunroof), but there are too many issues and the quality is poor. Don't do it!
If you want a car that is constant trouble and squeaks and rattles all the time, then this is the car for you; otherwise I suggest giving it a wide berth.
I am so dissatisfied with this vehicle that I have chosen to return it a year early and terminate my PCP contract.
Honestly, I wish I'd taken more time to research people's experiences of this car before buying one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
