Before I start I don't want to upset any VW owners here so please don't take offense.
I just drove a Mk6 Golf TSi and it left me feeling a bit empty. As it wasn't mine I took great care driving it so didnt experience it's true potential but it was still a very forgettable drive in a car which in my opinion has become very clinical. It did get me thinking about when the Mk1 hit our shores and British cars were falling apart on the production line it was a safe bet but now with modern cars and engines being built to last as long as they do is it worth buying a car that's reputation was built on reliability? Are they worth the higher price tag. And the lack of equipment leaves me questioning why? I mean the car I drove tonight could have only been a stop or two behind a GTI and yet it had no lumbar support, no cruise and only a single slot CD player. I apologise if this seems like a pointless rant but I was just wondering if anyone else has a similar opinion or has comared them against Fords, Vauxhalls and so forth when buying a new car.
