Used Volkswagen Golf 2004-2008 review

Want to know everything there is to know about this car?

In their own words

Well well well, where do I start with this utter piece of junk? Bought from a VW dealer for “piece of mind”. I think it’s far to say it’s been back in their workshop more times than I’ve been out in it. I’ve had injector problems, vacuum actuator been replaced twice, flywheel rattle, hiccups around 2k a light throttle, starting issues, locking issues, lighting issues, wheels corrode so tyres don’t seal properly causing you to lose pressure. I don’t think I’ve got anything positive to say about this heap of rubbish. Oh, actually the radio signal is good. That’s it. Avoid like the plague.
