I was at Denlo today and I was looking at the Mk5 that they had there.
I noticed a couple of them with bad gaps on the doors, see below.


Sorry about the quality, phone camera.
One was a Silver 1.6 and the other a white Confortline 2L.
I saw the white one first and I thought, oops someone at the dealership stuffed this up, but when I saw the second one I started to think 'No Mk5 for me!'.
Anyone else notice any such imperfections?

Re: MK V fault? (Erotas)

Do you mean the door doesn't sit flush with the body?
If thats not what your referring to, it looks pretty normal to me. There has to be a slight gap so that the door can actually open.

It just goes to show you... You are forking out a hell of a lot of money for a new car... and you still need to go over the car with a fine tooth comb beofre sign the dotted line - that way you are not stuck with the problem under warranty - Make sure you jot down the fault and the VIN number so you don't get the same car fixed! But a new car!
