What are common faults with Volkswagen vehicles?

As a general rule Volkswagens do not suffer with many chronic issues, however there have been cases of laquer peel that have seem to be appearing more often. Often caused by stone chips, the cars affected by this are predominantly late 2000s to early 2010s cars. Previous repairs and smart repairs may be beginning to show themselves on models of this age also.

Whilst rare there have been cases of Volkswagens showing early signs of corrosion, often around wheel arches and the door bottoms due to sponge blocks holding in moisture around these areas. Volkswagen vehicles are usually covered under the company’s 12 year corrosion warranty, however we have occasionally found there can be issues with this. At AutoSport Customs we offer a fully detailed inspection for paint defects and corrosion, and with our professionally trained eyes we can identify areas which may be cause for concern.

Our car body repair workshop is equipped with the highest quality resources, and our expert team have the experience and knowledge of the correct factory techniques to repair your vehicle.
