Tell me that.

Imagine this, I need to handover my old car at 3.30 p.m. At 12.30 p.m. while going to attend a very important appointment, while entering into the car park & while driving down a f**king steep & narrow ramp, realised that some idiot has installed a speed hump at the point where the ramp meets the floor slab & while driving through it, my bumper lip got stuck & nearly got ripped out. :banghead:

Upon inspection after clearing that, noticed that the bumper lip almost got totally ripped out resulting in a 1/2" gap between the bumper & lip while handing in place by a few mm of screw.:bawling:

After my appointment at 2.30 p.m. have to quickly rush to workshop to have it screwed back & rush to to handover my car.:banghead:

Anyway guys... I went to VW Showroom in G******ie, to see the Sedan and Passat up close,. (u all know, VW giving out discount for Passat) and do some testdrive.

True, the Passat has more power and handling, but after few minutes, suddenly all the dashboards lights (engine, seatbelt, airbag etc) starts to turned to 'orange' but the car is still running. The salesperson said, its a testdrive-car so a lot of people have been testing-the engine-recklessly (they also want to hentam the engine), so its quite normal to it. I had my doubt there. Im sure other buyer also hentam Camry/Civic or other cars, but dont know if the dashboard lights blinked. I mean, its a test-car and it shouldnt give a negative first-impression.

And, I also asked.., why does it take some time for repair or replacement parts.. he answered, ..the customer should send their cars to where they bought it, some showroom they just sell and not repairs, so if they buyer bought it in Kuantan and send repairs to Shah Alam, then it will take up sometime. I was surprised ! I mean, is it true ? Cant take ur car to any other service centre ?

Spent a while reading the complaints in VW Malaysia FB page & found that most of the complaints are for Polo, followed by Passat.

One guy who was very vocal there has been complaining about his Polo Sedan a/c for almost a year but yet to be able to get it resolved. Others generally complaint about the quality after sales service of VW.

You can take a look there before deciding. Took me a while to research & decide on my next car (over 6 months to be exact). We seems to have a lot of choice for car but yet it seems so limited when really search for 'the one'.

Finally decided to take the risk as well you only live once & life just a bit too short to worry too much & decided to take a 2nd hand Jetta. Had it for over 3 weeks now & frankly speaking the driving experience is much better than a lot of Japs / Korean but then keeping my finger crossed & praying hard that it won't fail & disappoint me
