Isn’t it now buy Skoda?

Probably. VW in Primark clothes, but even they are starting to shift up now to looking like good cars. The current Superb is meant to be the dogs bollocks. Sadly they don't really make a people carrier (yet).

The VW thing isn't a myth - they really are bomb proof. They do tend to be slightly more expensive for parts/repairs and have an added cost to buy but they will rarely let you down in the experience my family's had. My dad's best mate is a VW specialist and he's always said the same thing. The only thing he doesn't like about them is half the time they're put together so well he spends far too long trying to take them apart. Pretty much anything in the VW group will do you well (includes Seat and so on).

Japanese isn't a bad route to go down either as again, they tend to be reliable and fairly cheap as well. Not sure exactly what you'd go for as a option against a Scenic for instance, probably a Toyota whos name escapes me. Just make sure the thing stops ;).

Got a VW Passat 1.8T and a SEAT Ibiza Cupra TDI and both are excellent. After being used to working on Vauxhalls for a number of years the Passat was brilliant to work on.

All SEAT, Skoda, Audi and VW share the same engines and chassis.

SEAT - More sporty version of VW but interior build quality not quite VW standard.

VW - Good all round quality. Larger VW's are the best value for money as Polos and Golfs hold their price.

Audi - Sometimes overlooked as people think they are expensive but sometimes cheaper than the VW version.

Skoda - Slightly cheaper than VW for the same cars.

Polo = Ibiza = Fabia = A1

Golf = Leon = Octavia = A3

Passat = Exeo = Superb = A4

etc.

(Sorry, I'm a bit of a VAG evangelist these days.)

Picasso, old shape ones are dirt cheap and mostly easier to fix. C4 versions fall apart around your ears. Or as you watch. 1.6 Hdi engine is a gem.

Wouldn't touch the renault with the longest stick I could hold.

VAG group stuff is very good, but don't stint on service history.

Had both and the Scenic was a much nicer car to drive and bloody nippy for diesel. Started playing up and my brother who knows his motors said it was probably the oil pump and a £1200 bill.

Wife has a Picasso, just doesnt feel as solid as the Renault though but has done some miles at minimal costs.

You takes your pick

I've driven pretty much any car you could think of, and totally honest the Scenic is by far the worst car I've ever driven. Diesel or petrol it makes no difference. If its mpv you want, go for a vw sharran, Galaxy or Zafira. Pm me if you want any serious advice about what they're like to drive.

Heh, I thought he meant a 1975 Rover, one of these buggers:

mmm Rover 3.5 Litre V8. Now that was a proper engine

Too **** right it was!

I had the 3.5 V8 in these:

Seat are awesome cars for the money

VWs but 25% off.

Boom!

bought their new SEAT EXEO estate car and I love it.

shame VW stole the sirocco off them.

The Exeo is effectively the old style Audi A4.

yeah it is but with the new engine not the old one. the chasis is the old audi A4, but starts at £18.5k not £28.5k.
