Mileage and Maintenance
The city fuel efficiency of this car is 9-10kmpl. Highway fuel efficiency of the Volkswagen Vento is around 11-12kmpl according to the owner. The DSG gearbox is quite good but the owner is facing some jerkiness lately.
Issues with the car
The main issue with this sedan is the high maintenance cost. The annual maintenance cost of the Volkswagen Vento is around Rs.15,000. Due to some water damage, flywheel was replaced in the sedan which cost around Rs.1.5 lakh. In the most recent car service, all the four ABS sensors in the car were replaced for Rs.24,000. The first five years of the ownership of the car was the golden period, but after that small issues have started cropping up. For tall passengers, the car is not very comfortable. Only 4 people can only sit in the sedan though. If given the chance to purchase a car once more, the owner will prefer SUV over sedan due to better dimensions.
