Expert advice is not needed in sighting; anyone with an ordinary sense of sight can do that.

Point taken.
It is okay to listen to experts who are convincing in their areas of expertise but we should certainly not attach significant weight to such experts whose expertise and testimonies are unverifiable, and therefore, questionable.

Keyword is ‘major’. Means got minor issues.

Believe wat ppl mean is NO issues
Minor issues are usually wear and tear which is norm for VAG cars..

Audi a3 priced close to golf mk7.5.
Both end of life model.

Thus makes a3 a better buy.

Just need to see the review in YouTude.Those repair workshop will know best as both share the same problem and most engine part is interchangeable. Only different is one build for so call the upper market.

The A3 1.0l is cheap and relatively problem free. A lot of people driven beyond 100k km without any unsolvable issues.

To be honest the infamous "gearbox issue" not that scary lah.

It's almost never the gearbox, most of the time it's just the MU.
And if you suay until lao sai, at most need to change 2-3 times throughout the 10 years.
The MU cost is also not that scary, around $1.6k for oem and $2.5k for factory.

Yes, it's more costly compared to the bog-standard Jap cars, but the DSG gear shift and overall car quality in VAG cars really cannot compare.

P.S. i used to drive subbie, now golf

Supposedly the MU was short circuiting. High sulfur content in the oil. So they changed the oil and it apparently reduced MU malfunction. Can't remember which year they issued a technical service bulletin on this .
