What should I pay for a Volkswagen Golf with 46,000 miles on the clock?

I'm looking at purchasing a Volkswagen Golf 1.6 16v SE, 5-door with 46,000 miles on the clock. I am wondering what you think would generally be a good price. I am not really looking to spend more than £3500. It is priced at £3790 from the dealer, do you deem that reasonable? And is it a car you would recommend at all as a decent quality hatchback?
Not a very good car. A long list of problem areas. See car-by-car breakdown. A Focus is better value, more reliable and cheaper to service.
