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.

This is my 3rd Golf. Absolutely love this car.

Back in a manual transmission, and am very happy. Car is platinum black with gray interior. Very nice. Miss the XM, but there are other features I like.

Most reliable car I've owned

It's fast enough, has a great entertainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and has a SD card reader. It's a turbo and gets great gas mileage.
