In the process of looking at buying a new car - 08 reg Golf, just wondered if anyone had had any experience in haggling with volkswagen before.... never bought from them myself.
Any advice would be much appreciated!!

Full Service History.

Preferably from a main dealer as it's so new.

As a cheaper alternative to a GOLF (which i personally find a little bland, I had, and can wholly recommend a 2.0 tdci Focus titanium.

Cracking trim level, cracking fuel consumption, quite quick, low tax, low insurance and superb to drive... Quite possibly the best allround car ive owned.

It was nearly as nice to drive as my MX-5.

At the mo ive got an Insignia 160 psi SE which are becoming as common as dog muck!

Have a look on Autotrader to get some idea of prices. There are 08 1.9TDIs from £9,999 up. Depends on mileage (partly) and where you'd be prepared to go to get it. If you want a local dealer then you'll probably have to pay a premium. You can try telling him that you can get the car from one of the car supermarkets for £2,500 less and see what he says. Then decide how much you'd be prepared to pay to get the car locally.

My view is that I'd pay the trainfare to go and get it cheaper plus a small premium (c.£200) for the convenience. You may think differrently! :whistling:

I used to have an escort years ago, and have looked into fords. Problem is I don't trust the local dealers in terms of servicing and don't want to get ripped off for the next 5 years. I know the local Volkswagen group seem to have a better after sales care, so that is one of the main reasons I'm after a golf! Titanium does have everything that the match does though!

I'll have another look. Totally agree though I'm prepared to travel as the prices vary so much up and down the Country. Thanks for your help.

My last 4 cars have come from Chesterfield, Derby, Milton Keynes and Leeds! Well worth shopping around. :thumbsup:

I bought my car recently from here and it was hassle free, excellent price and very good trade in price! These two seem to match your requirement with low mileage & slightly cheaper! In fairness other people have had problems with this company my my experience was faultless!
