I have a new UP.

Has anyone had issues with wavey rear hatch.

the rear glass on mine is not smooth.
dealer says... thats how they are...

It's like the glass is dented...

If this were a normal metal panel, i'd take it to the panel repair shop

Definitely not 'normal' about a year ago, another forum member had a situation with a spontaneous rear window shattering, I wonder if the abnormal stresses on the glass caused this due to a similar situation to yours...bypass the dealer and contact VW directly .

They all seem to vary from perfect to bad, and is difficult to see if the lighting is poor.

All those getting a new up should check for this carefully when doing the handover, and don't accept the car if you not happy with it.

Mine is definitely in the BAD category. It's something you do not expect.

I went back to the dealer. the others on the lot are similar but mine is by far the worst of them.

Booked into the dealer for review.

I'm also now getting the geabox backlash clunk clunk clunk on most shifts and when I start the car, sometimes there is a loud "quite shocking' clunk but only intermittently...

Hasn't been the best experience so far.

If it wasn't for the warranty issues... I'd be having it like this http://www.voomeran.jp/product/up/index.html





2 weeks and 500 klms of averageness so far.

How can they call that abomination "aero". The voomeran kit would make the up as aerodynamic as a house brick!

Hope you get your tailgate replaced

PD
