I know what you mean by receptionist was nice. You reminded me of something exactly opposite that happened with me:

I took test drive of i20 and a week later i20 sales agent called me and I said I booked polo, hung up on me. The sales agent was a guy!! So, exactly opposite you see.

i think vw people were trained like this only [:)] but yeah bad luck since they had wrong car for TD. i loved the suspension of the polo ad obviously the build quality.

Oh !! god all in all what is happening with this VW cars, dealers and the company[surprise]. The complaints are just increasing and customer care seems to be pathetic and company is not at all bothered it seems !!

Looking the above, I feeling that some what TATA guys are better than the VW atleast they respond quickly and replace the parts without charges. The charges told by Alan are very very high !!

I really wonder why this much difference in consumables cost between cars like VW,Skoda and the Maruti & TATA[confused]

Becuase in their head they think they are upmarket and more premiuim then tata and maruti . [frustration]

And parts are expensive because their localization is less compared to tata , maruti .
This is the precise reason why gm , ford are still having bad name considering spare parts being expensive in past , even though now they are 80% localizing the parts and things are very cheaper people are till holding yesteryears memories .

@ allhyundai and righnow - I ave driven the Polo once the gear shits were smooth like butter infact I would say best in class . The attitude in showroom was very filmi and robotic ( many smiles but not from the heart ) .
IMHO the best friendly response I have ever got is from - Toyota , tata , mahindra . Mahindra and tata being more genuine and warm and courteous .

Anyways now the prob is solved in my aunts Vento,but they took alot of time,never going to go to that dealership again and they did not agree to change gearbox easily as i first assumed,the vento was parked cross at the entrance when they did not agree,then key given to them to reverse it out,so they got an idea of the harassment the owner was facing.

Anyways here is a tip to know whether your vento gearbox is a faulty one -

Any decent driving experience person should feel right at home while shifting gears in the Vento.
When the faulty gearbox was there,it was not possible for me to downshift from 3rd to 2nd,instead i had to slot it to 1st then go to 2nd.

There was a tricky knack to downshift to 2nd which i would get a hang of only after a few min of using the car everytime i drove it,the dealership had made my aunt believe it was normal,but i even remember asking a vento owner on this forum about this many months ago & said there was no such issue.

Now that the gear box is changed I do not have that downshift issue as before,so I am pretty sure thats the way of knowing ,so if your vento is new & it has a weird downshift,insist a complete replacement at first sign of trouble.

I have hardly come across gear shift problems in a VW polo/vento. In fact, if there is even a slightest of problem in slotting of gears, it must be taken to workshop.
Still, good to know that the car is back in shape and hope the car is not facing any problem these days. Can we have more recent updates on this vento if you get time??

Volkswagen Vento worst car

This is really a very bad experience for me to becoming a Volkswagen user. I am having Volkswagen Vento purchased in 3-4 year back. In last year I was came to know that there is some problem with gear shifting mechanism, when I requested to Volkswagen customer care they diverted the issue to local dealer and who is unable to help me. Ultimately I have to get this changed.
Then I reported the issue of displaying spring on car control panel many time and every time I was told that the issue is resolved now. 3 months back I again reported the same problem and local service centre informed me that fuel injector need to be replaced. There are 4 fuel injector having cost of 20000 each but I don’t know these were replaced free of cost. Again 2-3 days back I found the same problem of displaying spring on my dashboard and this time I was told that this is due to same cable. The cost of rectifying the defect is 6000/-bugs.
Really guys I am very frustrated with this vehicle. I purchased this looking at the car reliability but it seems it is worst car I have ever seen in my life. In past I used Marui Suzuki (2 different models) and currently also using one Hyundai but never find any issue but this car is really bad one. My recommendation is not to use this CAR.

Does anybody knows what might me the issue here?

It used to flicker and it will turn on normally for some days then after flickering it was turning off for some days. But nowadays it stops flickering and my dashboard is half blacked out.

Does anybody has any idea?

I drive a VolksWagen Vento 2015 model. My rear spring does not perform great on bigger speed breakers. I often feel that the car jumps flat on these and touches the engine. I have heard about utheran buffers available in the market. Any reviews on whether they are helpful?

Thank you in advance
