  • Summary

    3 out of 5 3.0

    What does this car say about you?

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    Overall, they think it is a nice car.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    NO! purely because of the negative attitude of VW UK in relation to the Turbo failing at such a low mileage and not willing to assist us with replacing it due to it being 3 months out of warranty.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    Not VW purely because the customer service and attitude of salemen are shite.

    No not really. They payed for 12 months road tax and that was about it!

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    What was the dealer like?

    Pretty poor. 3 days after purchasing the vehicle i decided to purchase some mats for the car from the dealership that we purchased the car from and i greeted the salesperson who sold me the vehicle and he totally blanked me!! Quite shocking in the fact he was more than helpful when taking £17,000 off me! Ironically the renault dealership from where we bought a car from 6 years ago still know who we are, where we work and what car we bought!!
