Problems since day 2, nearly three years later, finally fixed them all and the are not honoring any additional warranty
Brought a brand new VW golf from a local dealer, there have been multiple issues since, the dealership was friendly and helpful. However, other than fixing my car, which I had problems since day 2; VW told me that there is nothing they can do about the quality of the vehicle. My three-year warranty is about to end, so make sure you buy the extra care plan.

Best car for the money
Choosing between the Honda Civic, Hyundai i30, Toyota Corolla and the Golf based on price, we opted for a pair of golfs - one hatch and one wagon, so that we had a little more room when taking the kids away. What a fantastic car - plenty of welly with the DSG 7 speed transmission and 1.4l turbo, with virtually no gear change time perceptible, although a small amount of turbo lag, which is to be expected. I've recently discovered the Sport mode, activated by shifting down from Drive, which adjusts the gear changes to speed things up a little. Th...e automatic gears, windscreen wipers, parking break and lights make this the easiest car to drive - I'm just worried that I'll forget how to drive a normal car. Fuel economy is fantastic - I regularly get 5.3-5.5l/100km on my commute, which is 80% on the M1 and 20% urban, and can get below 5.0 if there is no traffic. The screen is set into the dash, so looks much sleeker than the other options at this price point. Terrific car.
