New Golf GTI Review......

8 posts in this topic

Picked up my new golf on Monday. Would love to write a review for you all to read but..... the only journey this car has completedd successsfully was from the dealers to the house since then there has been troubles.

Tuesday morning car wouldn't start - called VW assistance who were out within 40mins. Car started first time when he got here.

Tuesday afternoon - Car cut out at 70mph in the outside lane of a busy dual carriageway. Wouldn't restart. Same tech out again this time though the car was riddled with fuel pressure fault codes. Tech checked the car over and cleared fault codes - car started and all seemed well.

This morning car started okay but chucked it a mile down the road and wouldn't restart car was recovered to local vw dealership.

Oh and it gets better what would you expect as a courtesy car when your £23.5K VW chucks it?

Bet it wasn't one of these!!!

Sorry to hear of your troubles.. could be lemon time crazy.gif

Hope they sort it soon, but I would be raving if my car cut out at 70mph on a dual-carrage way.. that could be serious!!

That's dung.gif,

Might be worth trying to sell it on to someone else for a profit or just reject it and get another confused.gif

With those kind of problems this early, will it ever be right ??

Tough decision which I don't envy.

Sorry to hear your troubles Barry. Look on the bright side.....makes you appreciate the RS4 or Golf even MORE when you drive them. What colour did you opt for? I take it you have all the toys at that price? What stealer did you end up with?

It also appears that there has been an engine recall already on some of the early production models, I wonder if yours could be one of them.......
