2002 Volkswagen Sharan T 1.8 from UK and Ireland
Good MPV, reliability marred by big expensive repairs
Replaced gearbox (within dealer's warranty)
Air con has now failed.
The car performs well is comfortable and bright with good driver's position and all round visibility. Comfort and performance wise it's a massive improvement on the Renault Espace we had before. My local VW dealer is dire so I'm always worried when something goes wrong with it. Currently the aircon is on the blink and I have been warned that replacing the main unit costs £900. I wouldn't bother, but I've got three kids under 6 so if it gets hot in this car (and it is a mobile greenhouse) all hell breaks loose.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
