I have found my Scirocco to be really reliable. After two years of ownership, I haven't had a single problem.
Running Cost

4 out of 5

Considering the engine is a 2 Litre TSI with 210BHP, the running costs have been quite good. The average fill up at the pumps is Ł70.00. Average MPG over the last year has been 36mpg. Tyres can be expensive as they are special 18" fit so only conti and a few others have tyres that will fit.

I bought this car because I wanted another VW but not a Golf. I have owned 3 Mk 2 Golfs, a Vento TDI (Golf Mk 3 with a boot) - still have it after nearly 20 years service - a Mk 5 Golf GT TDI 170, and the Scirocco in the last 30 years. Styling is important to me, and I think the styling elements on this car are amazing if you take the time to look and examine them all. I did not buy because I wanted to be able to take beds to tips - it won't do that. I bought it as a treat for my mid fifties to replace the Mk5 which ultimately I did not like, and because it came up as an ex demonstrator at my local VW Dealer at the right time and a good price, had an excellent set of extras, (6 speed DSG, Satnav, Parking sensors, 19" wheels, panoramic sunroof, leather interior) and cost £9,000 less than the new list price 10 months earlier with only 9,700 miles on. I can fit my model boats into the boot when I fold the seat down, it purrs along the motorway, can get 45mpg out of it on a long trip if I drive sensibly, is a comfortable and pleasant place to be. The ride can be a bit hard at times but I prefer that to soggy handling. After 4 years I have now reached 36,000 miles on the clock so hardly mega mileage. Problems - a few, but nothing to stop me driving it. Had a new aircon compressor fitted on extended warranty by dealer (would have cost ~ £800 if no warranty), new drivers door window switch-bit prone to water dropping into it when open door!, new drivers side headlight as plastic holding the bulb in had distorted a little so bulb didn't work, A new rear shock absorber under extended warranty due to a small oil leak. The car has the adjustable suspension option as standard which is useful on differing surfaces of road. Not standard any more. Love it. White car.

Brilliant. i work as a car buyer so drive many different cars on a daily basis. From Audi A7's to Corsa's, ive driven the lot. And yet I have never driven a car that is as good to drive as the VW Scirocco. Granted I only have the 1.4 petrol engine, but its turbo charger producing almost 160 bhp is still blisteringly fast when you floor it, and it makes a cracking noise as well. After my 6 months of owning it and 40000 total miles over the cars total life, it ha had not a single mechanical issue, and everything feels qualtiy and and very well considered. One of the highlights of the driving experience is how smooth and easy changing gear in the manual is, after all the cars I have driven I have never changed gear so smoothly in anything else. Oh and handling is probably the best of any small coupe like this, not to mention better than most hatchbacks. The only drawbacks are of course the lack of a fifth seat and the shrunken space in the back, but lets be honest, if thats what you're concerned about then go be normal and buy a golf. but if you are more admittedly image-concious and want a great looking coupe car that you can enjoy looking at when you walk out the front door, then this is ideal. Its rivals are almost ugly in comparison, and if you can afford the extra cash then one of the crazy 280bhp R versions are a dream. Buy One!

these days most new cars are achieving over 60mpg, but for this kind of car anything over 40 is brilliant, and I average just about that. Insurance is pretty high but that comes with the territory.

Poor build quality. Electrics have mind of their own, when you open the car the drivers door window drops to ease opening of the door. But when you take the key out of the ignition the driver and passenger windows drop, even when there is no one in the passanger seat so all it does is let in rain and snow onto the passenger seat. Headlights have started going grainy. It is quite fast and it sounds good as it is pulling through the revs but everytime I pull away there is a loud squeal from the clutch release bearing, which is a common fault with 2.0 tsi engines which VW have no interest in fixing. Don't try and put anyone in the rear seats unless they are small and flexible. Boot is small but you expect that on this type of car but the shape and the huge load lip is annoying. Also you can only open the boot using the key or a switch on the drivers door which is very annoying, there is no boot release switch on the actual boot. I bought the car because I thought it would be a well built reliable German built car but it has been the complete opposite.

Squeals every time I pull away. Door handles creak and feel like they are about to fall off. Windows sometimes drop when opening doors and then don't close when the door is closed.

Love the car - looks and performance/economy. Got the dsg which is a real boon for town. Seats comfortable except the seams which cause a real pain the rear end...

The VW Scirocco i feel is very reliable and feels like a very well built car, handling is perfect and sticks to the road very well.

With this VW Scirocco being a Bluemotion the cost of fuel is very little, with it still being new there has been no cost on anything else

Best car i have driven in a long time. Great drive, performance and fule economy.Only Downsides are the restricted rear view (somewhat compensated by parking sensor) and the stupidly limited satnav, which does not accept full uk postcodes

I love my scirocco. Its the best car i have owned. It is my 5th car in 6 years, so i know my cars. It always turns heads even though it is now more common on the roads. I loved it when i first got it as i was one of the first to own it.

Review
I bought my Car as an EX-Demonstrator model. fully loaded with extras which made all the difference. This car can not stop turning heads after 3 years of ownership. I have had every man and his dog approach me to talk about it and I must say driving it, looking at it and cleaning it have been such a delight. More practical than rival brands and stands out amongst the crowd. I liked it so much I'm buying another with even more fun toys to play with. Economy is great for the 2.0L engine and drives like a dream. hitting pot holes can be a shock with the 19" lugano wheels but they managed to hold together well. Cabin is quiet and driver friendly. Getting in and out is a bit of a squeeze for taller passengers with the car being lower most people tend to hit their head getting in. Interior sound system is superb but i've opted for the upgraded system this time. I am yet to lose grip round corners as much as I have pushed the car it creates such a sense of stability and control you never feel like it will let you down. ACC button in RHD vehicles is located in an odd position probably due to the LHD markets. Affordable to buy, affordable to run. Fun to drive and turns heads. So happy I'm buying another :)
Reliability

4 out of 5

There was a slight noise from the clutch deemed a manufacturing problem for certain range of cars built. Not an issue but the noise was a little embarrassing at times so i got it fixed under warranty.
Performance

5 out of 5

Perfect balance of power handling grip and style. Obviously this isn't a track monster R version but it is very easy to live with day to day. ACC is a great addition as standard feature on GT upward as you can tailor the ride to suit your style. Lugged down with plenty of weight and it still performs effortlessly and breezes its way from 70mph to 130mph with hardly any effort. Gear changes are smooth and reassuring the best car i have driven to date.
Running Cost

4 out of 5

Between £50-£60 a week depending on fuel costs. This would get me between 350-400 miles for short town journeys to work and back with the occasional trip out. It's no diesel but then again I prefer petrol and happy to gulp the fewer miles for the better sound and quieter engine.
