    Overall problems

    Hello to all

    I am new to the tforum but just wanted to share some issues I have had with my 2014 Polo tdi. Since new it has had a complete new engine(at 16000miles) due to a cylinder defect; new aircon unit (at 25000 miles) and just this week a new flywheel/clutch assembly due to problems with the dual mass flywheel (at 27000 miles). The only warning sign with the last point was a slight shudder when idling. The dealer has been very good with me with all defects repaired quickly

    However VW customer service have been poor . The whole scenario has put me off any further VWs. You can always get a bad one but I have noticed that the aircon and flywheel issues are not isolated

    On the positive front I now have a nearly new car and it is averaging 70mpg on a run

    The people in VW's customer services department must have had an awful two years with the diesel issue and it's knock on effects, however don't let your poor experiences put you off the VAG group itself and instead look at Skoda next time, you will be pleasantly surprised.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
