Buying experience

5 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?

Did you buy this car new?

What price did you pay?

When did you buy the car?
October 2010

Did you get a good deal and why?
Yes, I used your website and traveled quite a distance to get this particular car. They offered a better deal than my local VW dealer and as it was the end of the summer (convertible season) the price was good.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
I wanted a smallish, 4 seater convertible but not a sports car.

What was the dealer like?
Extremely good. Took great care with and dealt with everything, delivered my new car and drove away my old VW in part exchange.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Very good to drive. Easy gear change. Quiet engine. The one downside is the turning circle which isn't very good but then you get used to it and its benefits far outweigh this.

What's it like to park?
Takes more turning to get it right as turning circle not particularly good but you get used to it. Reversing sensors extremely useful. Reverse parking not easy as rear view slightly obstructed.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Nothing to date, apart from usual wear and tear which is minimal.

What's most practical about your car?
Small enough for day to day use but big enough to take 4 adults.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
The electric roof. This is why I bought the car and it really does put a smile on my face every time I drive it. The anti-skid also came in very helpful last winter in the snow.
