Volkswagen Golf 2008 FAQs

Check out real-world situations relating to the Volkswagen Golf 2008 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Ten clicks out

    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 you're doing (see below).

  • Standardise all dashboards

    PERHAPS you should ask yourself why our governments haven't standardised with most of the world on left-hand drive. That would fix your complaint immediately. The reason carmakers don't standardise is the cost of engineering cars for right-hand-drive markets. Jumping between cars all the time I, too, occasionally wipe the windscreen when I don't mean to, but do it once and you learn not to do it again. It's not a big deal in my view.

  • 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.
