We went last night to pick up our new Passat from Richard Patterson Motors, just outside Kilrea. Just MOT'd and just valeted, it looks like a new car, and it drives well too.
One problem though - about half way home, I decided I was getting too warm, and turned down the heat, and .... nothing!
The hot / cold control didn't seem to be working, so out came the tools, but found I didn't need tools as the problem was with the lever which operates the flap, the lever had come out. So I got it pushed back in, and now its all working. I enjoyed the drive to work today for the first time in 6 weeks.
Its definitely not as fast as the Rover, but it still goes nicely.
