My fourth, and probably last, car from VAG. It is good at what it does, but at 50,000 miles (yesterday !) and 27 months old there are too many issues. In a car that young, you shouldn't have problems with lights that are caused by connectors RUSTING AWAY, nor should there be frequent intermittent problems with the DRLs. The above I could live with, but 3 days in the garage because of an electrical failure (frayed loom - not something that can be detected by following diagnostics, but because the repairing garage were not the seller, they have to follow Skoda's instructions for warranty repairs) at 15 months old was bad enough, but the car has just come back after 3 weeks off the road following a turbo failure, again, repaired under warranty, but it took so long as everything had to be done with reference to Skoda Technical, whose spec says the oil pressure should be 9 bar and the garage spend two weeks under direction trying to acheive that before Skoda Technical changed their mind and said it should only be 6. If it wasn't for these issues, I'd happily have another, but its beginning to look like VAG has returned to penny pinching - Coil pack, anyone ?
