2000 Volkswagen Lupo 1.0 e 999cc petrol from UK and Ireland
Excellent, individual and fun
No Faults, but if anything did go wrong there is an excellent warranty.
The car looks excellent, it is finished in Jazz Blue and despite the British weather it gleams as brightly today as it did when it was brand new.
The interior is extremely well thought out with plenty of space for passengers, I am over six foot tall and can sit comfortably in the front or in the well shaped back seats.
Although the car only has 999cc it performs well keeping up with traffic easily, although it is no Porsche I did not expect it to be!
The handling is widely criticised by the motoring press, unfairly so, it inspires confidence in all weathers and allows the Lupo to carry it's speed through corners meaning it can hassle far more exotic cars.
One here to untold bonus of Lupo ownership is that other Lupo owners wave at you.
The dealers customer care is bad, but appear to be making an effort to improve this now.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The Lupo has just reached 53000miles and is still going strong, in fact it seems to be getting quicker following its most recent service! The service has highlighted the poor value that main dealers offer £250 for a service on a city car is too much!
I intend to replace this Lupo with a new 1.4 16v sport before Volkswagen stop building it next year, a sad day for the world, sob!

64000miles just ordered a new Lupo 1.4 16v sport still no faults although a headlamp bulb did fail about 3000 miles ago. The residuals are pleasing as mine has retained 30% over my five year ownership of the car. I have been very happy with it and I am sure its new owner will be too.
