The service from our main dealer this time has been shocking. We know of other people who have had similar problems recently with a vehicle from new from the same dealership which is now on it's third engine in 40,000 miles!

This car is the fourth of this make of car that I have owned and up until now I never thought I would buy any different brand (in fact its why I am not saying what it is because I really can't believe that the make as a whole is rubbish). I do have a courtesy car from them but it is not the same (its a smaller car and most basic model) and their T&C say you can't take a dog in it which I asked after a couple of weeks for them to lift that restriction because I can't always guarantee that if I need to go to dog training or whatever BaronBRs car will always be available to me.

VW. I have a Golf. I have had two Golfs previously and thought they were brilliant and a Polo which was a 1.9 and six gears and they don't make them like that any more but if they did I would never buy anything different (at least before all this happened)

Those 1.9 TDi Polos were brilliant cars, I always fancied one. Saw a very nice two door version the other day.

We've been debating getting a 2nd car (or a campervan!) for transporting tents, bikes etc. Now I've started a job somewhere very awkward to get to by public transport, Mr W has succumbed to an old skool Volvo estate again. I just hope it's reliable and he drives it economically...

We are looking at replace my elderly touran for an electric car. The role out of ulez near to where we live will make it very expensive to drive it on those trips to ikea. Shame really engine is still going well. 2.0 tdi pd last of turbos before they went common rail.

Got something to say?
