    Default Another freshie

    Hi all, been a lurker for a while and now decided to dive in and say hello.
    I'm currently driving a petrol Passat that's draining me of my money and my will to live. The word 'lemon' was invented for my car!
    I was hoping to buy a Signum but the wife has put the kibosh on this because of the rear seats (long story - child seat + ferrying the in-laws = 5 people but only 4 seats... you see where I'm going with this?) so will probably look instead for a Vec. I'd hoped for a diesel to get better value for money on my commute but (a) prices have moved ahead of petrol quite a bit and (b) I've read all the stories of the CDTI's problems and am now not that keen to take on another car with "issues".
    I'm now thinking about the 1.8vvt sri, so will be looking for advice, etc, from all you experts.
    Cheers,
    James

    She hasn't entirely ruled it out. She just doesn't know it yet.
    In reality you can count the number of times in a year we have four adults plus our son in my car on the fingers of a Saudi Arabian shoplifter with one previous conviction, but that's still enough to apparently make a Signum "totally impractical".
