1998 Volkswagen Golf Convertible 1.6 petrol from UK and Ireland
A lovely car to drive, crap build quality
We have had a constant water pump problem, which the dealers can not seem to fix even though they have replaced the pump 3 times.
We have also had problems with the paintwork, seat lining, interior buttons falling off, suspension squeaks and headlamp being smashed.
The dealers are the most unhelpful people that I have ever met and charge an absolute fortune.
Love the car as it has a high pose value, is nippy, stable and handles well but until VW do something about their build quality and dealers I will never buy another VW.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
