Best year to get ? fuel economy? any serious issues with engine, Mk4 or mk5 edition,thinking Mk5 would be better? manual or DSG ?, camchain issues ? with some cars I have fairly limited experience with these cars but have driven an Eos many times and really liked the power , handling and sound of course ,found the economy pretty reasonable however petrol is rather expensive here ( 2.20nzd/litre ) but expect an improvement on my old mk3 VR 12v auto ?. I'am not interested in a Japanese import cars as the are generally poorly serviced and can be suspect,I like the 4 cylinder GTI's of the same era but not convinced they are a safe purchase given known issues with the earlier motors,my mate runs a VAG euro workshop and has mixed thoughts about them Having said that my son has owned 2 later GTI's and has had nothing but regular servicing costs. The R32 appears to hold it value very well in my country,a good one is usually 15Knzd from my research on our countries biggest auction site. Comments please from owners of these cars,TIA,cheers.
