What used Volkswagen Golf estate will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Volkswagen Golf estate?

Tracking down a good example may a take a little while, as the Golf estate never got close to matching the hatchback in terms of popularity. For that reason, it can be cheaper to buy than the hatch, but it will still be more expensive than a Ford Focus or Vauxhall Astra estate.

Service intervals are every 12 months or 10,000 miles, which is par for the course, but you may well find the work more expensive. At a VW dealer, you'll find that their hourly rates are slightly above the class average. Independent experts are a little more expensive than their Ford counterparts, too.
