A great looking, fast, economical car - Perfect company car!
Rattle from glove box (not an unusual occurrence looking at this list!)
An excellent car overall - very impressive in all areas. Let down by not-quite-Volkwagen-like build quality and poor dealers, but at the end of the day, this is truly a great car that I would fully recommend.
Great looking car with an attractive and comfortable interior.
Performance is very good at low and high speeds, matched with amazing economy and good motorway refinement.
Over 50MPG easily achievable on longer trips.
Quality of the car is superficially very good, but there are a number of rattles and areas that are not of the high standards expected of Volkswagen.
Dealers are appalling - disorganized and unhelpful. Because of the quality of their product range, they clearly feel that they do not need to bother in terms of customer care - VW needs to put some focus into this before it begins to lose customers.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
