Surprising amount of wear on parts.

No power steering. Ride is good though firm.

Performance

4 out of 5

Heavy around town, superb on the motorway.

Reliability

A few niggly faults, but still better than UK-built rivals.

Easy to break into (according to Autoglass).

Service

1 out of 5

VW service doesn"t provide a courtesy car as standard, or valet service, or guaranteed reliability. Usually serviced within the day, but otherwise quite poor. German efficiency doesn"t translate in the UK.
