Volkswagen Golf 2008 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Volkswagen Golf here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Why is the gearbox clunking in my '08 Volkswagen Golf?
It’s quite possibly caused by the clutches in the gearbox; they may need to be replaced.
Problems with Golf automatic transmission
The recall you refer to related to cars fitted with the 7-speed gearbox, not the 6-speed. You could attempt to negotiate with VW over your concerns on the basis of goodwill, but your car is six years old and has been worked on by so many different people that I don’t think you have much of a chance of success.
Downgrading from Golf
The Polo will be a top choice but don't overlook the Honda Jazz. It's a different style of car, not feeling as solid as the VW, but lively with good outward vision.

THE speedo is allowed to read up to 10 per cent higher under the law, but cannot under-read. In that sense it is within the law. The best solution is to use a GPS to confirm the speed.
