    My car

    Very surprised to read some of the previous negative views. Some slight niggles such as the windows not closing due to the auto sensor and the rear door buckles catching the closing doors. The car is very versatile for all 5 of our family, the seat layout is great for long journeys. There is limited space for luggage in the 7 seat spec but this is hardly surprising. I got a roof box for the big holidays. The car is very nice to drive, good handling and good levels of power available although I missed the slightly heavier german steering from my golf. I still think it looks better than its nearer rivals. I had more serious problems with my mark 4 golf so I think the previous reviewer may have suffered from the Monday/Friday cars scenario. I would recommend and my next car should be a Touran but maybe the 1.4 petrol as it offers similar performance but with cheaper fuel and costs.

    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.
