A great car with some unfortunate niggles

Almost everything about the car is great, stunning looks great performance and comfort and it has almost every comfort and safety feature you could want. But it had an annoying noise coming from the drivers door. It sounded like the window was rubbing on the door seal, especially on concrete roads and roads with tram lines. The VW techs could not find what was causing it, the car also developed a clunk in the suspension which the service team could not find.

One other issue is the way the car jars when you go over those small sharp speed bumps like in Bunnings car parks, this may just be a penalty of 20" wheels.

It was my daily drive going to work etc. and a few road trips, serviced regularly. Show details

Once tuned they are amazing

These cars look so good and with a performance tune they gain the much needed 25% extra power.

No parts just a tune from a reputable company.

Keep in mind though that the engine is strong but the gearbox is hit and miss. Could be strong metal but sometimes made from metal coloured paper

Go ahead and buy it though. You won’t regret it, same price as a golf r but isn’t cheap feeling like a golf r. Show details

Sunroof creaking & low torque

Sunroof creaking sound whenever turning at low speed (Example: turning in/out from driveway). I also feel the accelerating power/torque doesn't do justice to the 268hp car. No power on demand, hesitate to overtake sometimes when you step on the accelerator. I have to release the accelerator and floor it again for the car to pickup/overtake. I think this is a problem I read in some article that the car engine is sluggish. But once the car take off, then I can feel the acceleration power. Other than above, I am loving this car.

Value for money with premium features!

Travel to and from work, this car is the ideal cruiser. Plenty of room, all the latest features available and averaging 8.2L/100km, given that I do a lot of stop start during peak hours.

Service interval is every 12 months or 15,000km. I have not had any issues in the 8 months I've had it, terrific car.

Cross shopped with a BMW 4 series grand coupe and this came up trumps, plus save yourself $20k when you upgrade the BMW to similar specifications as the VW Arteon!

Really surprised they're not selling more of these. Show details

I love my Arteon!!

I have had my VW Arteon for over a year now and LOVE it! There is nothing I can really fault about it because it handles so well and is stylish has so many awesome features and is actually very zippy. Best car I ever had comes with longer warranty then prestige brands. So much space in boot and back seat plus plenty of room in front. So many safety features and is very comfortable even long distance Show details
