Please check JD Power reliability rating. VW is at the bottom.

am a ex-156 selespeed owner

had my fun with it, but the selespeed reliability wise, .... [mad]

i thought robotised gear shift is proven to be not long lasting until VW came out the DSG.

i really thought VW is more reliable and more fun and can endure more when down shifting.

now is proven that robotised gear still got room for improvement.

now i only drive manual.

I use the selespeed and its not unreliable. Just need more maintenance n some parts changed for longer lifespan. Driving style must also adjust like driving manual car.

 

Believe it or not, the older gen selespeed parts are on the whole cheaper than a full conti torque converter gearbox. Its also simpler compared to dsg. Spoil just change these few mechanical parts. Its not the smoothest thing out there but its involving n fun to drive. Vw try to make it smooth with a more complicated system n the results are obvious.

Sometime I look at VW, 1.4L with Turbo TSI, it must be hard on the engine.

Why hard on the engine? Manufacturers r going with smaller engines with turbo making up for it.

VW "performance" figures are tested at 23 degrees celcius with no aircon on.

 

Running at Singapore 31 deg and aircon on 100% of the time I would estimate a 20-30% overall powerloss.

 

It all catalog numbers that impress people with VW.....in real life, not so good.

My VW car physical parts still ok after > 2 years leh. My fellow VW owners in VW forum also never have this complain. But I have seen worse things happening to a Altis coming to a year old. So toyota is more lousy?

You heard of taobao? You will be surprise you can get alot of VW Touran things from there.

 

And if you are talking about accidents situations, then there is little distinction between toyota or VW. All will be equally ex. And with ever increasing VW population and decreasing toyota population, who knows how things will turn out 5 years from now? [lipsrsealed]
