2007 Volkswagen Touran 140 HP from Sweden
Poor quality! The DSG gearbox is smooth when it's working, but breaks down easily. We have had to change the control unit and LOTS of other expensive parts on this car.
Last week we changed the ABS sensor (1400 euro).
It's a practical car for us with 3 children, but over the last 2 years it has cost about 6000 euro (!!!) in repairs.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

There's nothing new about poor design and quality on VAG products.

As a former disappointed owner of a VW Touran DSG, I will never buy another VW product. I bought the car in 2008 as a nearly new (2 years) as my young family expanded (we have 3 children). At first things seemed fine; I was impressed the car could be fully loaded up and still returned circa 50 MPG on a non-stressed motorway run. However, after the warranty expired many items started to fail, and these were costly repairs like turbo and DSG mechatronic unit. Very poor quality trim too. Worst of all I was very disappointed with the attitude of the VW dealership. Never again...
