-Car Bought from VW dealer-
The car supposedily had a VW 200 somthing point check before being given to me.
In the first week the following happened.
Temp sensor packed up, going from 0-max every few seconds.
Car pulled hard to the left.
Rattle from the engine getting worse as each day went on.
Took it to the dealer asap (2nd week) and it was in for work for 1 1/2 days. came back with only the temp gauge fixed. Said about the others and service wanted to charge me £58 and hour to work out what was wrong. Explained that I had only had the car a week and I had a 12 month warranty. After 20 minutes of stressfull arguing they agreed to book it in the following week.
That is the last I've seen of it, now been two weeks with out it. The rattle in the engine has require a full strip down, last I heard the head was off and the cams where out. Parts are being ordered in from Germany, so that is more delay.
This car looks the part, sounds the part and even goes to match its looks.
But so far I'm am not happy with the reliablity of it and the total lack of caring from the dealer. The sales bloke who sold me the car has said I'm not to phone him any more and only deal with the managers. Nice, after one week of ownership.
To make matters worse I asked for a loan car, this was agreed. On "dumping" my car with them this offer was retracted. only to be reoffered once I had a fit and asked for my money back.
It really gets to me, the fact you have to threaten them with so much just to get the thing fixed.
I will not be buying a VW again, and to be honest I'm in two minds about keeping this one if I ever see it again.
Should've bought a Type-R.
