2001 Volkswagen Sharan 2.0SE 2.0 petrol from UK and Ireland
A very comfortable, effective vehicle
Some problems with interior trim. The paint began flaking on the interior door handles after just a few thousand miles.
The backs of two of the seats appear to be quite a vulnerable spot. Two of them cracked quite easily when knelt on (when in the folded position).
Apart from a couple of minor issues I've been very happy with this car. It is mechanically flawless and I intend to purchase another one soon.
The sixth gear impressed me most when I first got the car. It turns the car into a very effective motorway cruiser, although sometimes city driving can be hard work.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
