My worst car in 25 years of driving
EGR valve failed £300, airbag faults, steering column lock failure £1000+, various electrical faults, central locking failure £250 etc etc...
This car is superb to drive and gives 50mpg+ on a run. The car has a full VW main dealer service history and is in an excellent condition. I love the look of this car.
I have to sell the car as it is simply too dear to maintain. I have only done 10000 miles over the last year, but have needed in excess of £2500 worth of repairs. The steering column fault is a common failure, which costs loads to put right, and can only be done by a main dealer for loads of money.
(If it does not go soon, I am sure that I will be caught out by clutch & DMF failure, injector failure and possibly oil pump failure; all well documented faults on the net.)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
