Volkswagen Ameo DSG Automatic Ownership Review

The review is from an owner driven 1500 Kms in first month of ownership

 

Points in Favor of Volkswagen Ameo

1. Its the only Proper Diesel Automatic Car in under 10 Lakh Price. where other Manufacturers like Maruti, Tata, Mahindra are offering in AMT Auto Gear Shift, VW is the only Manufacturer offering in 7 Speed DSG Box in Ameo. The cutting edge technology was the first reason

2. Apart from Technology, VW Ameo is also the most Powerful Diesel Car in the price in which its offered, The High torque of 250 NM make me go ahead for purchase call

3. Braking ability, Cornering Ability, Steering Handling, AC Chilling and Music Infotainment Quality are awesome. You can vouch VW Ameo for it

4. When checked the car - the Build appeal of VW Ameo car as against Honda Amaze, Swift Dzire, Ford Figo Aspire, Hyundai Xcent feels much more Stronger. The safety feeling made me go for it

5. Comfort in front seats is very good. will say no Back or shoulder strain. Back Seat Comfort is good for People with height of 5'9" or below, as no problem then and the car feels spacious enough for Family.

 

 

Negatives of Volkswagen Ameo

1. There is a some small amount of lag, (will say small) when you want sudden power surge, typically during overtakes. This is observed in sports mode as well.

2. DSG Reliability, is it 100% Reliable on Indian road conditions and is it safe to take car in Monsoon driven conditions, due to Volkswagen cars typically have bigger Air Inlet for providing in Power Torque on it. Unsure on Long term reliability. The Internet has too many articles expressing concern on Volkswagen DSG

3. No where Volkswagen written on car, except the VW Logo. Though its not a negative, but why the Auto Maker skipping to write Volkswagen when Vento has it

 

Some Feelers / Tips

1. As i checked Pre hand that regular 15000 Km servicing to cost in around rs 8000 to 10000. So - you have to make up your mind for same. Other Diesel cars in similar segment are not too low in real world in maintenance cost

2. For Mileage - as car is new - still sharing some info, can expect 17 Kmpl Mileage if driving at 80 kmph with Cruise Control. In City roads, 14 to 15 Kmpl mileage should be expected

3. Strongly recommended to take Extended Warranty if you buying DSG Automatic. Read online about some issues Internationally, VW offering 2 year standard and 2 year Extended Warranty on DSG. I intend to owe the car for 5 to 6 Years - so hope luck will be in my favor and will not face any issues

4. Also as interaction with dealer - i have been told to never wash in Volkswagen Ameo Underbody (may be true for other Volkswagen Cars too), as per dealer - there is already an add on protecting anti rust coating in Underbody in Ameo, and also are some sensors placed in. If a pressure wash is used in Under-Body - can possibly impact in sensors - impacting car functionality.

Final Comments, Recommendation: Overall very satisfied  with the Car Model. If you want an Automatic Car with cutting Edge Technology, Build Quality and very good Driver, Co driver seat comfort, Features and Styling for 5 to 6 Years  - should considering in Ameo at a very attractive price.

 

Expert Comments on VW Ameo

If looking for a car with
> Class Leading In Cabin Space, Big Boot Space
> Lower Ownership Cost (Lower Maintenance + Spare Availability + Spare Part Prices)
> Car for 5 Passengers with Taller Passengers on Rear Seats

you may well be disappointed

However - for Buyers where priority is
> Powerful Peppy Engine

> Advanced 7 Speed Automatic Transmission yet in a price, which no other car in segment offers
> Accurate Steering, Good Suspension Dynamics
> Safety along with Build Quality or Advanced Assistance in Handling car through ESP and Hill Hold Drive Assist in Top of Line trim
> Buyer looking for Fully Loaded Car in Sub 10 Lakh yet spacious enough for a Family of 4 with boot space just bigger than Hatchback

Hi
I too have booked a cameo dsg. A question about the care plus package. Should I get only the extended warranty or the full care plus package which includes 4 services. The whole price quoted for it is 71000. Seems pretty steep
