Fair to buy, tyres excellent, still haven't changed, fuel good.

Expensive on servicing and bulbs need changing a lot, but then it's a VW.

Security

3 out of 5

It could be better, as it doesn't come with remote central locking or alarm.

Service

3 out of 5

Generally the service was ok, but that is only due to individual people. On the whole very rude.

Problems

Bodywork
Picks up scratches very easily, but on the whole, great.

Engine
No problems.

Gearbox
It is starting to have problems, but the car is 4 years old now, so to be expected.

Other
Steering column has always made a knocking sound, but VW people are not helpful or interested to help.
