    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Very good MPV and reasonably economical but COSTLY service and Clutch with Fly Wheel problems costing a fortune to replace them. Bought when the car has 22K Miles now 65K and now the COSTLY DMF(DUAL MASS FLYWHEEL and Clutch gone wrong). VW asking MINIMUM £1200 to replace DMF and the Clutch. All new VW diesel models(after 2004) were built with the COSTLY DMF instead of CLutch Plates(which are cheap and easy to replace). I suspect that VW purposely did built the diesel cars with the DMF to make money not to help cars ot consumers.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Apart from the NASTY DMF, The car is very good car, comfortable, spacious, cruise control, rain sensitive wipers, electric windows, AC, etc

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Cruise Control,
