    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.

    My car

    Ywo years, 30k miles later and I am trading my Touran in for a Passat estate, not because there was anything wrong with it just I fancied a change from a box on wheels. However, I cannot fault the Touran at all excepting a couple of very minor warranty issues. MPG has been brilliant, the ride very good for an MPV and it's been incredibly practical. The only down side is that it is uninspiring to look at, but don't let that put you off. I am surprised to hear of the reliability issues others have experienced as both the car and my dealer have been excellent

    My car

    The Touran has been a very disapointing car to own, in that I have neve had a car with so many faults during the first 2 years of ownership, water leaks, oil leaks,wiper blades,the gearbox has also had to be replaced plus several other faults,and having done less than 12,000 miles I do not think this is acceptable The dealership has been less than sympathetic and at times insulting, I~ will never be buying a Volkswagen in from them again

    My car

    I have been an avid VW owner for the past 15 years with a succession of Golf's, Polo's and most recently a Touran purchased in 2005. 2 year servicing may seem a great idea but we experienced a succession of annoying problems during the warranty period which has been inconvenient. Then the big whammy just as the warranty period runs out. Our Touran had done 29,000 miles when the ABS pump needed replacing. "Oh dear" said our dealer; "nothing to do with us - just hand over £1,450 +VAT and that should sort the problem but no guarantee". So this is what we did. During the ABS pump replacement the power steering unit went. "Nothing to do with us" said the dealer "that will be another £1,250 +VAT". Pity we did not buy the car on a credit plan -- we've been told dealer attitude is very different in terms of good will. Suffice to say the Touran is being traded in for a non VW MPV!
