Not ideal for anyone to have problems and hopefully I don't have anymore but at least it isn't costing me anything yet....
    As a customer, they should bottle you.

    Iíve been driving a 77 polo and a 110 golf as loan cars for my tiguans issues.

    Iíve noticed they both have noticeable shuddering at take off. They both had only 2000 and 7000kms on them!

    Surely not a good sign!

    Are the dry boxes stil posís?

    Did a 500km drive today. The car was great overall. Amazing on fuel, great power/torque(110tsi)

    Buttttttt, it fried the clutch on a slight(auto hold)incline, hill start from the kerb, just before I got home. About .5-.75 secs of slipping as it attempted to move the car and I then backed off completely (was about 15% throttle) as it smelt and then for the 500m it was to get home, the trans was ****. High revs, slipping as it changed and wouldnít climb into my driveway from the 30degree gutter face. I Had to back up and Ďramí the car up off the road and onto my concrete.

    Hopefully a cool down is all it needs. But still mighty worrying for a 7500km car.

    I think you may have just answered your own question ?

    Car drove fine yesterday, although the interior still smelled of burnt clutch- 24hrs later. Which wasnít ideal in a 5mth old car.

    I feel these dry clutch units are still a sensitive and fragile thing. I donít believe theyíre fit for purpose. Especially now that the golf has such a torquey bottom-end in the 110tsi motor. It really puts a big load on the clutch from the moment it starts to engage.

    I canít imagine how theyíd handle towing a 750kg trailer from an incline takeoff more than once or twice in a session. Or back into an uphill driveway smoothly/without overheating.

    Driving one while itís in optimum condition and having instant access to a second car- mostly great.
    Owning one- no thanks.
    Owning one after 5 years- never.

    If your daughter has a nursing shift starting at midnight 30 kms away, would you prefer she took the 5 year old automatic Corolla or the Ďautomaticí Polo/Golf?.

    The Golf. Automatic and selective door locking, safer in an accident and better lighting.
