Seriously considering one myself, hows the car with the lowest powered engine? Not expecting it to be a hot hatch, but does it feel/drive ok etc with only 90bhp?

I remember a deal posted for Arnold Clark for the 1.4 petrol, but there hasn't been anything posted for the new TDI engined model. Also, i have driven both the 1.4 petrol and the 1.6 TDI 90 and there is no comparison - the petrol is totally lethargic whereas the diesel has far more midrange punch and feels pretty lively. 62+mpg helps too!

I haven't had chance to drive them yet, but my local VW dealer told me the petrol was nippier and revved much easier. Said the 1.6 tdi felt heavy and underpowered but was very frugal. Hmm, I really do need to try them, as they may have just had more 1.4 petrol to shift

It's Great deal. Grab it! Just need money!Ohhh~~

Well 90bhp is not much. The 105bhp 1.6 TDi gives all but identical mpg (identical engine with only a different airbox and exhaust manifold) and is in the same road tax bracket and on the offer is only £745 more and well worth the extra IMO. I would also add a retro fit tuning box upping the bhp to 130 and torque to 214 (lbs/ft). This will should give it a sub 10sec 0-60 yet still get 60mpg and leave it in class C £35 road tax banding.

not bad at all! buy a crap pre99 car and drive for one yr then get the deal done..... if it still available then!

Scrappage ends Feb 2010 :whistling:

good luck - VW & Audi are both out of build slots - esp golf & polo until next year = 17.5%vat so the deal MAY not be as good as asvertised!!!

I have just tried to get an instock new golf/polo for my wife and i found more rocking horse poo on the way home.

Just a shame VW can't improve their reliability and get it back to where it used to be.

I'd say Honda Jazz or anything by Toyota. These two marques are known for reliability.

Don't recomend modding a car that's still under warranty, also this car won't have the stopping power required for 130BHP

130bhp is not a lot though. Does it have different disc brakes then to cars with more power in the range?

Personally I want a 1.4GT been looking for an MK5 one. I have a MK5 1.6 FSI good car but even with 115bhp it's still too underpowered.

Yep - Honda Jazz or Toyota Yaris (Aygo if you want even smaller) should fit the bill.

I'd be surprised if the the MKV 2.0 TDI 140 Sport has the same brake setup as the sub 100BHP model, do Golfs come with drums on lower spec models?

130BHP is relative to the car it's in, Passat/A4 comfortable, Fabia/Polo/Ibiza good fun!

Hyundai i10

Loved my owners and the press, £35 tax, cheap insurance, great economy and a five year unlimited mileage warranty.

Decent sized boot and five doors.

Knocks the Aygo/107/C1 into oblivion.

(Automatic is an option on the top spec vehicle, but unfortunately that takes it into a higher tax bracket.)

There is fine translation of instrument, are not they?

Shame, it just doesn't come out the same as you want it to!

I wouldn't touch the 1.4 petrol. UPI have to really rev it for it to keep up with general traffic as it doesn't have the torque. I have the 1.9 diesel in the Touran people carrier and it is great. You don't need to rag it and it gets nearly 50mpg even with the ac on almost all the time. I would recommend diesel anyday.

Typo on my phone, 'UPI' should say 'you!'

Get a GTI and then you will know what is like driving a golf:p

AGHAGHAGA

Yet another person who doesnt understand the difference between reliability and cost of ownership.

The jazz is very realiable, however your pockets need to be deep when things go wrong.

Also remembering that the higher the spec a vehicle the more things there are to go wrong, hence they become 'technically' less realiable. Eg we drive a 1.2 E polo as a 2nd car, it has no spec hence has had 0 issues in 4 years.

Dont beleive all the marketing bullcrap, make your own informed choice and dont forget to ask the garage about servicing costs etc.

The Mark 6 Golf is a stunningly brilliant car. I had a 1.6 diesel for a weekend and was bowled over by it superb build quality and refinement. The 1.6 is not sluggish, in fact is an excellent compromise between economy, refinement and performance. The only problem you will have is finding a new one! I was quoted Feb 2010 and that was making an order 5 weeks ago as the UK allocation for 2009 has run out.

What are you a child? How can any one take your post/s seriously when you arrogantly laugh (I presume that was a laugh, or maybe asking your mother to take your dummy out maybe) like a foolish kid. I originally brought up these cars as reliable and good choices and provided what I consider are honest reviews of these cars. Conversely I can make the argument that a car which has cheaper parts but goes wrong a lot more often is no better than a very reliable car with more expensive parts that hardly goes wrong. Sort out your attitude it's a bit obnoxious.

I had the 1.6 on holiday as a hire car... With 2 people in the car it could barely move it was so underpowered for the weight. The sound system was also so bad I thought the speakers had all blown or something. Maybe I just expected more from a golf...

You drive a Golf R32 and your board name is yaris :-D

Ps i have the SE 105ps mark 6 as a company car and its a good drive, would recommend it over the focus style tdci which was the other option.

I've had a MK5 for over a year. An 04 reg which has now done 52K miles. Not much has gone wrong to be honest, only a sensor which the garage reckoned was £300+ and they fixed it out of warranty for free. Depends if you believe the garage of course If I get a 1.4GT which has a supercharger and turbo and get the DSG option which is everything I'd want then I'd expect probably to have more problems and larger bills in the future.

I used to work in the car industry so I find it important to make sure people are informed rather than rely on marketing.

It hacks me off that people are conned into buying cars that on the belief in a low number of 'warrenty repairs' when they are infact, on average, going to cost them more money.

This is hot uk deals, we want value for money.

Ok that's fair enough but you can make your point without resorting to overly chastising people.

I guess any 'sit up and beg' style of car would be great.

How about a golf plus? Larger, but doesnt quite carry the premium of the golf, so 2nd hand bargains can be found.

Hot price, but be prepared to get on first name terms with your mechanic.

Isn't there a three year warranty with new cars regardless? Or at least cover for that amount so you don't need to MOT it?

There's also the Nissan Pixo which has an auto option and is a cheap to buy no frills car.
