Want to know everything there is to know about this car?
A bit over priced, paying for the badge.
High service costs, high tyre use, in two years have had 10 tyres on car! on 26k miles.
On the road
Good solid drive, steering slightly heavy.
Good performance at speed, acceleration can be sluggish and a little unresponsive.
Living with it
Several niggles solved under warranty - at a push!
Has the badge but at the end of the day it is an estate. VW have lost their way in providing quality.
Good lumbar support in front. Middle back seat uncomfortable on long journeys.
Security and Service
Reluctant to solve tyre problem even though it is a recognised problem with this model - never again!!
Problems and Ownership
Excess oil use - excessive use after every 600 miles. Apparently this is normal!
Air conditioning unit replaced, very excessive tyre wear. Unfortunately will never buy another VW again. Poor car for the money.
Did you buy the car new?
Would you buy the same model again?
Did you buy from the same manufacturer again?
