    Don't do it, don't buy VW

    published

    I've owned VW for a good many years and have some wonderful road trips in North America and Europe but that all ended. I bought a new VW golf in 2013 and it will be the last time I own a VW, the car was a lemon. Dealing with VW Australia was a nightmare as was the dealership and service centre.

    Rubbish

    published

    Well let's start with a positive.
    It's a very nice car to drive, steers and handles well.
    Otherwise we've had nothing but issues since we bought it in 2014.
    We had the engine ticking noise which vw refused to admit until I insisted they fix it.
    Now, just out of warranty, with only 10,000k we have the DSG/clutch shudder issue, which according to VW Five Dock is not something they will admit exists! Apparently it will cost around $3000 to fix though.
    Seriously, don't buy a golf or any VW car with DSG.
    And no comments from those who blame the driver please.

    Gearbox issues

    published

    Our VW golf is 4 years old and although we have had it service yearly at a VW dealership, we have always had another issue every year. Most problems have been rectified by 'computer upgrades' which I don't understand why it needs to be done again after a regular service.
    We have had a issue with the gearbox and although initially told it was out of the 3 year warranty, in the end they replaced it for free. This would've caused us a few grand out of pocket. They replaced it because they acknowledge there are many issues with the gearbox in the cars that weren't even on the recall list.
    Our mechanic told us to sell the car now that it has a new gearbox and is problem free for now.
