Things You Don't Know About Golf 4, Volks, Benz, Bmw, Opel, Ford, Audi & Volvo. by mrcoolautofix(m): 9:03am On Oct 15, 2020
Most of you often quickly jump into conclusions that golf 4 is electrical nightmare,

1. most people who sees golf as electrical nightmare have little or no knowledge about German cars electrical electronics system.

2. Car owners that complained that this cars are troublesome have a very legitimate poor maintenance habits.

3. Most mechanics who find this car troublesome are lunatics who knows nothing a computer, car engine management sensors and how there work together

4. Mechanics who prefer toyota cars to vw are not fit to be called a mechanic

The European idea of mechanic is not a butcher or lunatic but enthusiast sharp brains creative and psychologically inclined personalities,

Ofcourse most of our mechanics are good psychologists but they lacks lot of information stream that makes this hectic job a lot easy to deal with..

And if they know this, the last thing they will need is a peanut payment to do a job..

In a nutshell if you find any mechanic who fixes these hot head European cars, listed above in Nigeria, when i talk about mechanics i mean 80% percent of the work on these cars.. such as computer diagnostics, Ac, electrical & electronics , bodywork, and mechanical.. you need to respect him him cos it's not easy.. ofcourse I know some that knows like 60% it's impressive..

Japanese cars are simple engineering for bush brain mechanics... Car for average people that's why 80% Nigerian will be named after Toyota ...........

I have not come across any unfortunately but it all depends most German cars are more electrical sensors issues not mechanical so I am positive the issue with your zafira bus is electrical related.. I have Deal with one before..

I am in my forth European Car(2001 0pel Astra). They are great great cars if well mentained, but that does not change the fact that Asian brands give you better cost of running and aultimately higher peace of mind. A typical Naija auto technician is about 15 years behind in diagnosis and hardware, non Asian cars in thier hands is a greater disadvantage, especially with electronic components. Japanese brands are kings here, let's kiss the truth.
