    My dad has one of these but his is the 105bhp one. He's had a new DSG gearbox under warranty due to a judder that vw could never solve. Engine seems ok but it is slow

    I think it's the 90 bhp manual model, has steelies, standard cloth trim, 59 plate on 40k paid nearly 9 grand, I'd of thought it would of at least come with alloy wheels!?

    Only issue I can see, is the family member is a carer so involves driving inbetween homes no more than 3 mile apart, so I'm worried about issues with the dpf?

    dpf could be a issue if used for stop start journeys
    i would sugest giving the car a good run every 2 weeks so it gets a clear out
