Ask Smithy Xtra Transmission valve on Golf worth fixing?

Answered by CarsGuide 23 Jun 2010

I would certainly get it repaired. Fixed it would be worth around $15,000, so it’s well worth fixing, but if you don’t it’s value would be severely affected.

Golf climate change

Answered by CarsGuide 8 Apr 2010

VW's advice to you is rubbish, they sell the Golf in this country and they are responsible to make sure it is suitable for the climate we have. I wouldn't accept this advice. As for the new model I can't say, but I doubt there has been any change.
