Love the mk5 and mk6 golfs and some really great engines but as you said Sirbendy, they have next to no devaluation!

No you don't cheap build quality on that one, save your pennies for a MK6 made the real way, well as close as you get to MK4 build standards which were the best ever on a Golf IMHO.

i was under the impression the mk6 was a cheapened version of the mk5 as it was costing vw too much per car compared to the focus/astras

I've always thought the mk4s were poor built quality from experience (having owned a mk2,mk3 and mk4) and from the reports and owners threads ive read on the Golf owners forum. MK5s are the best built from what ive heared (havn't owned one). My grandparents have the newest polo tho which seems very well built and very simular to the mk6 golf I think.

I've had a MK3 and am on my 2nd MK4 and the MK4 was very much nicer built and trimmed than the MK3 was (and that was when comparing like for like models in my MK3 and orginal MK4). The 3 was good but the 4 is just that bit more luxery and upper-class, feels internally like an Audi did at that time.

I tried a MK5 out and internally it was cheap and plasticy, it rattled and was generally cheap, the MK6 has brought back the feel of the MK4 interior which I certainly missed in the MK5.

Almost a year on and i've managed to clock up over 20k, not had to change or repair a thing just service and some new bulbs Great little car but im looking to sell soon get something abit lower miles and a little quicker and better for motorways as previously mentioned a 6th gear would be great. Fuel wise its amazing ive never averaged below 60mpg and I reset the trip each time I filled up, one of the best hands free kits ive ever seen built in too the offical ford optional extra. Im tempted by the ibiza FR diesel again as my next car having been in a friends a few times and a Honda civic 2.2 CDTI, the only problem is the civics are noticably more expensive and a golf is still way out of my price range unless I drop a few years from the fiesta and go for higher miles which I'd rather not!
Oh I did change the wheels a month after buying the car back to ZS alloys and 4 new tyres, now had any buckle problems and I drive on some pretty bumpy country roads daily

Strange I thought you was talking about my car... I own the Fiesta Titanium model and it makes squeeky noises from the back passenger seat (they couldnt sort this out at the last service) theres a squeek in a wheel some where when turning left a bit (when going slow) again they cant find it because its not happening all the time and theres also a rattle on a bit of plastic at times bottom right of the windscreen (inside plastic).

I'd love a sirocco but preowned ones are 12k+ The focus is a great car just make sure you have a high spec model such as the Titanium of Zetec S. My fiesta started a few weeks ago making a squeeky noise form the back too when I have passangers it it more so but it was only MOT'd last month and nothing found.
