No problems.

Service

1 out of 5

Would never buy VW again, as we were advised it was perfectly normal for an engine failure in a car of 2 years old. No help whatsoever from VW Customer Care. Car has continually broken down.

Problems

Bodywork
Good.

Engine
Ceased within 2 years.

Gearbox
Good - very solid.

Other
Required new ABS box at 6 months old, new starter motor, new lamda probe and engine failure - all within 2 years! Extremely disappointed with the VW service received. I will never purchase a VW again.
