Summary:

Faults:

The hill-hold function on the DSG gearbox did not work.

Nothing else though.

General Comments:

Pros:

1. Powerful

2. Quiet

3. Excellent build

4. Economy around town

5. Good HiFi

6. Useful headlight system (Xenon)

7. Good service intervals

Cons:

1. Uneven steering assistance

2. Hard suspension around town

3. Space too little in the back third-row seats

4. No dedicated aircon for third-row seats

Overall: an excellent family 7-seater car for the occasional full-family runs. Would serve exceptional value for daily commuters with occasional sports.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

There are only 4 of us in my family, so the third row isn't really important for me.
