The event, focused around the new VW Golf family, also gave guests a chance to get up close and personal with the full range of VW cars, as well as to test drive them.

 

The event featured a presentation by sgCarMart Senior Automotive Journalist Desmond Chan, who shared about how the VW Golf is in fact a template for the prototypical family hatchback, and how the brand has refined and perfected that formula over 44 years. MCF members also got a chance to experience VW's range of models in Singapore, including the latest models such as the Arteon.

 

Along with test driving the various Volkswagen models, there was also a lucky draw, with cashcards up for grabs, as well as the grand prize of the three-day test drive of the Volkswagen Golf GTI.

    Owner unwilling to pay after workshop rendered service

    A post about a customer who refused to pay after a battery replacement workshop rendered its services has gone viral online. Spotted on its own facebook page, FastFix Car Battery Replacement Service explained how the whole issue came about.  It wrote in its post that its client, Mr C, reached out to them saying that he needed help as his car could not start. After listening to the symptoms the car showed( car still cranks and aircon is not as strong as before), the workshop concluded that it needed a new battery. However, upon reaching Mr C, whose car was parked in the CBD and hence the need to pay for ERP charges, the guys from FastFix realised that it wasn't the battery that needed replacing.

    Concluding that there was nothing the guys from FastFix could do to help, Mr C was then asked to pay for the labour fee that had been pointed out before in their Whatsapp conversation. Unfortunately, Mr C disagreed and refused to pay the $50 that they had agreed on as nothing has been done to his Kia.  There was not much FastFix could do which probably prompted them to 'share their story' of the client on their facebook page.     Here are some of the notable comment in the post.
