Pros : Good Pickup and Milage

Cons : Indian make is Unreliable, Unlike European Volkswagen

Quality of manufacturing in India is poor and dangerous: I purchased volkswagen Vento Highline petrol car ( WVWD11607BT054232, CLS 069007, 65751) which was delivered to me on 25th May 2011 from Frontier Autoword Gurgaon. On my first trial of the car itself  I noticed a problem with gear shift, problem disappeared after sales person asked me to restart the car so I didn’t bother much and thought it could be because of new geras. However during few days of driving I realized that it was definitely a problem and went to  volkswagen workshop at Gurgaon. Attendant at the center confirmed me that the problem was genuine as a lock or clip was not put in  during the assembly. Seems Volkswagn is not following quality standards when it comes to India. Overall Experience: Very Poor

    I am using Vento Disel Highline, delivered in March end. I have driven car for 2000 KM so far. No problem faced so far. In long run (600 KM out of which 100km are inside bangalore) I got around 17km/l milage. Do not worry about spare wheel. The outer diameter of both the wheels are same. I also waited for 5 months long time to get the car delivery. Worth the wait. Nice car. But dealer response is very bad. In dealer response, no one can beat Maruti

    Problem has been fixed now. But point is that don't expect German flawless quality in India.

    hey amit, did u buy the car from delhi itself and were you charged for each trip to the service station.

    iwas thinking replacing my swift desire with vento but after reading reviews im thinking other wise

    Sanjay, Go for something tested and well supported ones like SX4, City/Etios. I decided to drop off Vento after seeing these experiences. Vento over priced and poor featured car.

    glad yr car is fixed now.Think u r right abt VW selling defective or standard of work in india not upto the mark..My 25 days old Vento Hgl Petrol(abt 400kms done) was and is now again in the workshop now.Very disappointing/harassing.Maybe they want me to book a permanent spot in their workshop???
