"We were extremely pleased with the service we received. The staff bend over backwards to help."
"What a great service, when we booked we were surprised to see that it was booked in with the main dealer VW Solihull ( by using this website we saved over 40% and that’s genuine!!) the car was collected and returned for a £6 fee, it would cost more in a taxi!! The car was returned washed and vacuumed, Thank you so much I would defiantly recommend this site to anyone."
"Happy with the service. Definitely recommend."
"I've used MP Motors for many years and they have never let me down. The staff are friendly and offer great value for money. Unlike some garages, the never try to inflate the bill by doing unnecessary work. Would recommend wholeheartedly."
"I had my first service and mot with faraday mill this week. I was very impressed with the service I received and I found it very useful they could pick up and drop off for free! I was called by the garage half way through the process to be reassured my mot had passed and I felt the staff were so friendly. I will definitely be returning next year. Thankyou!"
"Very helpful and great value for money."
A heritage German brand that has been a favourite for decades, it’s hard to throw a stone without hitting someone who owns or has owned a Golf at some point in their life! It’s essentially a rite of passage for anyone searching for a safe, reliable, and family-friendly car.
Interestingly, Volkswagen has three cars in the top 10 list of best-selling cars of all time - the Volkswagen Golf, the Beetle, and the Passat. Not bad, right?
Known for their reliability and value for money, VWs have long served as a reasonably priced little sibling to the more luxurious Audi, receiving excellent reviews across the board when it comes to the motoring press. You’d be hard pressed to find a range of cars as practical, safety-conscious, attractive and just generally good to drive as a Volkswagen.
“Dieselgate” - The Recent Volkswagen Scandal
Traditionally, Volkswagen has long enjoyed a reputation as a trustworthy manufacturer of high-quality vehicles. The recent emissions scandal has put a bit of a dent in that, with the company admitting to cheating on official tests. This means that certain diesel-powered Volkswagens built between 2009 and 2015 may be responsible for more pollution than one would suspect after looking at official figures. These cars could be recalled sometime in 2016.
However, scandal aside, VW has a wide range of models spanning the budget spectrum, with a variety of models to match (petrol, electric, and hybrid included). The previously mentioned Volkswagen Golf has recently entered its eighth generation, and the traditional three and five door options now have a wide variety of alternates joining them. With estates, cabriolets, GTI and R models, and even a fully electric version, the Golf range is where you can find almost anything you’re looking for.
Other popular Volkswagen models
If you’re on the hunt for a good value SUV option, the Tiguan and Touareg will both be right up your street. The Scirocco is a great choice if you want something a bit more interesting, and of course, the quirky new Beetle is a popular choice.
Common problems with Volkswagen
There have been complaints about the electrics in the “new” Volkswagen Beetle, and occasional issues with the check engine light staying on. Excessive tyre wear has been reported for the Passat, and convertible roof problems have also been noted with the Volkswagen Eos. Seat belt issues and air bag problems are sometimes relevant for drivers of the Golf, e-Golf, and Jetta. The Volkswagen Passat is also worth keeping an eye on, as it has had issues in the past with complaints about engine failure from oil sludge.
