A blast of a daily driver

by James GTI from Buffalo, NY | June 03, 2020

I’ve been courting this car for years and am having an absolute blast with it. It’s fast, fun and hugs corners. The fact that I’ve made it 1 week without a ticket is pure luck!

Excellent value

by MountainBikingGTI from Plymouth, MI | February 27, 2020

This is the 3rd Golf we purchased. I truly love the size of the vehicle. It is small but, big enough for all my needs. It holds easily four adults, I am a short guy though at 6 ft 1. I can put my mountain bike in it just fine. Fit and finish is excellent, it feels more expensive than that it is. I am very pleased with the gas mileage, I regularly get 40mpg+. Parking is a breeze. I feel decently safe. The first Golf we owned (2017 Wolfsburg edition) got crashed. I hit a brand-new Ford Edge on the rear axle at 55mph and walked away from it not even being sore. We currently own a 2017 Golf GTI and a 2019 Golf S. I am very satisfied so far with my purchases. And, when I need some additional space, I put my roof box on it.

Very Good Basic Car, But Beware Lack of Cabin Heat

by Dog from Middlesex Vermont | February 19, 2020

Excellent visibility, good cabin space, handles well. Mileage: mid 20s city, mid 40s highway. The bad: Car has a new motor (1.4) very, very cold blooded. No cabin heat in winter for almost 15 minutes. A problem if you need to use the defroster. Dealer acknowledges problem, no fix. In addition, this model has a common problem with the water pump thermostat, which results in the cooling fan staying on continously (further adds to the heat problem!) Took the dealer three visits and three weeks to repair with a new water pump. Should be a recall. Not the end of the world, but disconcerting with a car that has less than 1,000 miles and a problem which the manufacturer knows is systemic and affects many cars.
