Starting to wish i bought the golf now to be honest.
What?!

Let's zoom out a bit here pal, you have a warning triangle on your dash, and your car runs perfectly ok.

Yet you wish you bought another car? LOL. Honestly, go and buy a Golf, but if a warning light comes on that then you can wave goodbye to your bank balance for a few months.

To put things in to perspective, I get this all the time, normally about my rear numberplate light, I check, it works, ignore. Problem solved eh?

edit: LOL between this and the other thread about hating the GP because the radio fades out when changing stations, I am actually lolling my face off.

Re: warning triangle

So...most of it was covered under warranty, others were usual wear and tear. Not sure about the dualogic, clonking is probs suspension, juddering is probably the engine mounts.

I think you're being a drama queen. See, for the cost to fix ALL those problems even out of warranty would probably total just one problem for the Golf.

I would just relax mate! Seriously a car is a car is a car things will fail on it. All you have at the moment is a generic warning light, the car is performing as expected, all the external lights are working, just relax it could be erroneous!

Rain sensor only applies if you have automatic wipers.

Hill holder won't apply on a dualogic model, as it holds the handbrake on on uphill gradients until you lift the clutch pedal. Dualogic = no clutch pedal, so I can't see the hill holder system being fitted.
