    My car

    Have owned a 2L diesel manual version from new. I have done 34k in the 2 years I have had it.

    Has proved very reliable - have had none of reliabilty issues evident from other reviewers - has only been into dealers for routine servicing whith no otehr faults.

    My only issues are the quality of seat material and interior plastics which are poor - I expected more from a VW!

    My car

    My 05 Touran is off the road as the Turbo has failed. Repair is going to be just shy of £2000. Furious. Do not expect this of a car I bought new, which has been well maintained and driven. 35,000 miles on the clock. Whilst the car was under warranty major electrical work had to be done due to a leak. Hate to think whats going to be next. Looking to trade it in as soon as possile.

    My car

    I have a 2.0 tdi on a 06 plate. I thought this would be the answer to a three chilren problem. I wrongly thought that buying vw meant quality. It has been back to the dealer twelve times in under two years. Last repair, clutch and fly wheel. Many of the problems are unsolveable, and the service department look blankly at the car. It drinks oil fast than saudi can pump it iut of the ground. The remote locking system is totaly unreliable. The key fob rings the door bell but doesn`t open the car. Having said that the lady from down the road who owns a focus can open our car at five hundred meters. The car drives well it fits three, children two friends and all the usual kit to go with these demands. Unless you want to be on first name terms with the service depatment of your local vw dealer stay well away, from a well design but very poorly manafactured car.

    My car

    Overall like the size and the seat layout but the upholstry is not really robust enough for a family. Biggest problem which seems to be very common if you run a check on the web sites is failure of the ABS. We are just out of warranty with 27,000miles and face a bill for £1500 for a new ABS system. Since we sold our old and reliable Golf estate for less we are very dissapointed. What we thought was a high quality reliable car is high maintenance and very expensive to keep on the road.
