2003 Volkswagen Golf SE 1.9 tdi from UK and Ireland
Nice car, shame about the build quality
Dashboard rattles, dealer cannot fix problem so they've decided to fit a new one.
Centre console rattles.
Horn works intermittently and sticks on.
Car is comfortable and quick, but seems thrown together rather than built properly. Interior is a bit gloomy, but is comfortable enough.
The seats are a bit hard for my liking.
Good economy and reasonable insurance costs add up to a good package, shame about the build quality as it's spoiling my enjoyment of the car.
Most of the faults are known to Volkswagen and their dealers, so why can't they have sorted them out on the production line?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
