2011-reg Petrol, Owner for 1 to 3 years

The only problem I have encountered was a faulty light at rear off side volkswagen replaced and there has not been any other problems since. When I drive economically the running cost is great reaching 50 mpg on a 33 mile trip to work spar parts are somewhat more expensive hence the mark down to 4.

Apart from uneven wearing tyres, the car has been faultless. The tyres are expensive as they are 18 inches and the fuel consumption is high considering most of my mileage is done on the motorway.
