2011-reg Petrol, Owner for 1 to 3 years

I have had no issues at all since purchase. the car is the most reliable I have owned. this is my 19th car! Service pack included in purchase so only running cost is petrol, tax and insurnace which is very low for a car of it's performance.

Poorly manufactured with lots of rattles and crunchy gearbox in cold weather. Excellent combination of performance and economy. It took at least 15,000 miles for the performance to improve.

A well built 'coupe' - as with all coupes, it is a compromise of price, performance, and practicality. However, VW have done a very good balancing act with the new Scirocco.

No issues - absolutely solid. For the performance economy is fine; still waiting for first service. insurance was much lower than older and bigger bmw.

Perfect blend of style, performance and economy ( with 1.4 engine).
Very well built and good dealer service ( Beadles Aylesford Kent).

I've had the car nearly 3 years and the only thing to fail was the ipod connector. For the performance it offers its very acceptable.

Just makes me smile every time I look at it and drive it, probably one of the best looking cars of the moment.
