Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Volkswagen e-Golf hatchback?
All the usual caveats apply in terms of making sure the alloy wheels are in good shape, that there are no horrible scrapes along the bumpers and bodywork and that the interior doesn’t have nasty stains on the seats or carpet.
In addition to that, you’ll want to make sure that the car comes with all of its charging cables and that they’re in good condition. Replacing them can be expensive as these are not your average domestic plugs and have to safely carry large amounts of electricity to charge your car.

Is a used Volkswagen e-Golf hatchback reliable?
There wasn’t enough information to include the e-Golf in our latest What Car? Reliability survey; however, the standard car only managed an average 11th place position for diesels and 14th for petrols out of 27 family cars. Volkswagen as a brand came in 17th out of 31 car manufacturers, which isn’t a stellar performance.
