Why not state the normal price so that we can see the savings? Otherwise it strikes me as a lazy deal which will go cold very quickly!

VOLKSWAGEN GOLF DIESEL HATCHBACK 1.6 TDi 105 SE 5dr Manufacturer's Recommended Retail Price:
£21,725 Our discounted price just:

£17,155

Where do manufacturers get these silly rrp from for what is basically a tin box,engine,and 4 wheels? £17k is still a lot of money and for something that will loose more than £2k/yr.

know a lot about cars don't we!!

If you think buying VW automatically gets you a reliable motor think again. Wife bought a brand new Lupo. Steering lock broke, wing mirror fell off while driving along, ECU light came on an wouldn't go off and the thing rattled like crazy in the cabin. Traded it in after four years for an Aygo which has been a brilliant car.

Same can happen with any car. You probably got on that was put together on a Friday afternoon.

why didn't you take it back to the dealership? Comes standard with warranty. Lupo are rubbish. it's the bottom of the vw market range. I've had a golf 1.9tdi dsg auto from new for 25k. Not once have I incurred any problems. You get what you pay for.

Everyone I know who's bought a VW still recommends them even several years later, so they must be doing something right. I recently got a dealer-registered Golf 2.0 TD and it's magnificent. Cheap to run as well.

Everyone I know whose had a golf in recent years has had major expense before 70k miles, incllding a new engine in one.
If you think VW = Reliability you are sadly mistaken these days. German cars are no longer have the build quality they used gto,

If you look at the reliability stats from best to worst, the difference isn't massive, with a Honda being only 15% more reliable than a Vauxhall. The "king" of reliability these days, Toyota are hardly unblemished since all those well publicised recalls. If you buy a new car, expect some warranty work to fix the niggles - that's why they give you a warranty. With over 10k parts in the average car and ever greater reliance on electronics, no new car is infallible. German cars still have that "built like a tank" feel, but it's electronics rather than mechanicals that'll usually have you waiting at the roadside for the AA/RAC. I've had 7 VWs from new and they've all had warranty work, although none have had faults that have left me stranded. You'll find most German cars look newer for longer and have massively better looking interiors.

If you buy a new car you have nowt to worry about - your warranty will cover you. If you choose VW, you'll get far better than average retained value when you trade it in. This is one of the reasons that VWs are cheap to run. By far your biggest cost on a new car is depreciation. This will hold about half it's RRP, compare that with your Fords, Fiats, French cars that'll hold 35-40% on average. Most people with any brand of car will start to incur big costs at at 50-70k miles - that's when things start wearing out, like injectors, brake disks, batteries, needing new timing belts and gearbox oil changes.

I have never kept a car 70k miles, but my Dad's MK5 Golf 170TDI GT DSG never skipped a beat in 123k miles he had it. It cost him a set of brake disks and pads, replacing worn tyres and the cost of sticking to the maintenance schedule.

The MK7 Golf has a raft of safety features as standard you won't see on many other cars - including radar distance detection that'll warn you if the car in front brakes and even brake for you if you don't brake in time, the system works in conjunction with the cruise control that'll maintain a gap between you and the car in front.

So picking a VW Golf over it's peers will see you with class leading residuals and standard (not optional) safety equipment. Hot!

Having had 4 Seat Alhambras (ie VW Audi group) I can say the build quality is very good but reliability is by no means perfect.

German cars in general are not the most reliable, in fact I wouldn't touch a BMW for this reason.

The best cars I have experienced for reliability are 1990s Hondas. Bullet proof. Not even sure Hondas now could match them.

Could you post something to back that up? I've got no bias one way or another but I find it very difficult to believe that German cars are "in general" less reliable than anything else.

'Which?' Magazine 2014:
Most reliable new cars in each class

Luxury cars: Mercedes-Benz E-class (2009-) 94.5%
Estate cars: BMW 3 Series Touring (2012-) 96.6%
Sports cars: BMW 3 Series Coupé (2006-2013) 96.6%

My 1997 Prelude needed a complete new auto gearbox when it was a month old. I think they had to get a new one in from Japan; it was off the road for weeks. Lovely car when it was working.

It seems everyone has a different opinion on reliability. On this website reliabilityindex.com there are quite some surprises. I would have thought a warranty company would have their finger on the pulse, they are after all paying out hard cash. Surveys are generally unreliable, because many people (but not all) often want to substantiate their decision for purchasing a vehicle by making positive statements and overlooking some faults.

I agree with rlearmouth that 1990 Hondas were bullet proof, owned three and in 180k only ever replaced a light bulb and worn tyres. That said I now own a focus 1.6tdci, 2 years old and it has also been faultless.
