I am the second owner of this car, it currently has 110,000 Km on the clock, and besides the usual wear-and-tear, I have never had a problem with it. The shape is out-dated (Golf Mk I), the plastic interior not of the highest quality, door panels thin and noisy.
If you want a reliable car, buy a VW. I am so impressed with this car, that my next car will definitely be a Golf Mk IV GTi or similar.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
