I bought my 2007 sve petrol auto in 2008 from Car Giant at a keen price for cash. It had done about 7000 miles and now has done 40000. The Note replaced a Passat v6 tdi and sits on the drive alongside a 1997 Almera which has been a good long term car. I found this site when looking for advice on Note handling which I'll pursue on the correct pages. I look forward to contributing my experiences so far in due course. For several years there has been a need for this forum and I congratulate its founders.
