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.
Not to worry if any of these problems affect you though - we are here to help you find a good Volkswagen garage near you that can sort you right out.
