2003 Volkswagen Touran Sport 2.0 TDI from UK and Ireland
Generally very good, needs some tweaking. Hopefully the newer models are better
White smoke billowing from under bonnet after a a short drive on cold mornings.
Boot catch broke would not shut at all; previously has to really slam it to shut, and the dash light nearly always stayed on.
Great car. Would advise getting the 2.0L TDi (red I) which is really nippy.
Great for kids, but if you have three, which all need car seats, it's a bit of a squeeze doing up all the seat belts.
Like most 7 seaters with the seats in the boot, they are a bit pointless, as when you use them, you have no boot space; can't even get the smallest buggy in!
Don't get the ones with cream interior, even if you are very fussy; it gets marked very easily.
The trim around the glove box is poor and doesn't line up at all well - maybe better on the newer models though.
Why do they put that rubberised paint on the steering wheel and around window switches, which very quickly scrapes off and looks very tatty. We have a Passat too which has done the same.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
