27 Jun

The fit and finishes are great, the engine and transmission work together to make driving pleasurable, and the Golf is easy on the eyes — not trendy in a way that renders it outdated in 5 years.

18 May

Golf used to present a perfect, per my opinion, balance of drivability and practicality per $1 of price.

13 Jun

I'm a Golf believer!

though it is not a "sports car" (like the GTI model) it does hold the road with great stability and manouvers responsively.

The fun and feel that the Golf R "manual" conveyed to me was unmatched.

9 Aug

Can’t say enough good things about this Golf R.

17 May

It's a step above the GTI, bigger tires, the 4 motion gives extra grip, and much more powerful, SUPER QUICK, I had 2 GTI's that where great, this is much better GTI's had no issues lots of fun also, Golf R is a step UP

17 Apr

I would've kept Mk4 Golf till it died.

29 Mar

but when I drive em back to back I prefer the luxury and refinement of the R. I drive the golf like I stole it, racing everybody who lines up at the light here in Philly.

19 Mar

The equipment level of the Golf R is top notch.

15 Jan

I have been driving my 2019 Golf R for almost two years with close to 24,000 km and very few to no issues at all.

14 Jan

for top of line golf, needs these features: remote start, (seat, mirrors) memory for each driver profile, real time psi tire pressure monitoring for each individual wheel, as well as temporary spare tire.

3 Nov

Upgraded to the newest Golf R Gen 7.5 and I have to say there is a significant difference between the two cars, not just in terms of price.

24 Oct

but the Golf R, is indeed a step up, very noticeable.

17 Apr

and definitely nowhere near as fun to drive as the R. We also own a Mk6 GTI that I find uncomfortable.

19 Mar

This car feels like it has much more than 70 extra horsepower over the GTI.

10 Feb

but also it's performance and engineering components I assure you it's not a GTI it's a flying box. 😀

27 Dec

In concept it's a great car, in reality I wanted back in my old GTI after about 30 minutes in (fortunately my wish was granted).

3 Nov

Had a Gen 6 GTI and it performed flawlessly for 6 years for my daughter.

24 Oct

In my opinion, the Golf R is better than the GTI in every way, except for the price.

23 Aug

but you needed to run it pretty hard to gain much over a standard GTI, but the 2017 develops torque earlier and is definitely worth the premium price.

21 Aug

After having driving a GTI for 3 years before upgrading to the R, I can say that the R is a much more solid and comfortable feeling car (when in comfort or race mode).

7 Jan

My only criticism: noisy tires at high speed and a few rattles in the cabin.

2 Jul

Everything rattles.

15 Jan

My only complaint is the 19" Continental high performance tires which can be somewhat noisy at high speed.

17 Oct

My only concern is the high performance 19" Continental tires which can be quite noisy at high speed, depending on the pavement.

7 Aug

There is also a bit of a creak coming from the passenger rear which sounds structural.

3 May

Pieces of trim rattle on the inside.

26 Apr

And there’s no way I can afford the TTS, so I opted for a 2019 VW Golf R in one of the 40 special-order Spektrum colors.

We currently own a 2017 Golf GTI and a 2019 Golf S. I am very satisfied so far with my purchases.

24 Sep

From the base model for someone who just wants a nice car, the GTI for something sporty, the R for something aggressive, and the Alltrack/Sportwagen (discontinued in the USA) for those of us that want a little more room.

25 Aug

though it is not a "sports car" (like the GTI model) it does hold the road with great stability and manouvers responsively.

5 Aug

The GTI is the hot hatch that serves reliability and excellent driving to college students, young professionals, and sport cars enthusiasts.

31 Jul

We're preparing to move to northern Wisconsin, so I wanted something with more ground clearance and AWD than my 2017 GTI (loved that car!).

9 Jul

From the driver's seat I can clearly hear the exhaust sound, resonating muffler, tire noise.

27 May

My coolant pipe had a leak, and a vacuum to my brake system needed to be replaced.

21 Apr

They have replaced the same O2 sensor 2x, charcoal canister 2x, n90 valve and the most recent (5/20/21) reset the engine management system per a VW tech bulletin and a belt tensioner pulley.

28 Jun

I do find the voice recognition for the infotainment system frustrating.

13 Jun

but sound will not.

9 Jul

- The muffler is awfully loud, and when the engine is running at about 1,500 revs under mild load, it comes into resonance with the engine which produces very annoying noise.

21 Apr

This last visit included replacing a squeaking belt tensioner pulley that delayed finishing the repairs an extra day.

31 Dec

My wife loved the compact size of the R32 (which was her daily driver) so there wasn't much question that we would go with the updated Golf R and have not been disappointed 2 years later.

24 Aug

If a hot hatch is what you are looking for, then I would highly recommend looking into the Golf R or GTI.

And when you drive it normally it feels like a normal golf.

It really is just about a perfect daily car/performance car balance and worth every penny over the GTI (but the GTI is a great car).

I owned a 2015 GTI with the performance pack prior to this car and absolutely loved it.

7 Jun

Coming from an Infiniti, I have a high bar for comfort, performance, and sophistication - the Golf R checks all my boxes for sure.

14 Feb

We bought our 2017 Golf R as a weekend/road trip car and I was super satisfied with it's performance.

8 Dec

but although it is just as much fun (or maybe even a tad bit more fun than the R) I would still say the Golf R is overall the better car as it really does everything nearly perfect and is more understated.

7 Jul

The Golf R is a really cool mix of a 4 door car, a hatch that can absorb stuff to haul, and a super sticky - tossable car that can just scream!

17 Apr

22 Sep

The golf has a really nice interior at a really great price vw was offering mine for $21k on thanksgiving.

9 Jul

We chose the 2017 Golf Wolfsburg Edition because it included all the advanced safety features - emergency braking, rear cross-traffic warning, etc.- in a low-cost car.

19 Apr

I got my 2017 Golf S in April 2018 & it has been fantastic!

17 Apr

Great suspension and it runs a lot smoother and quieter than my previous Golf.

16 Mar

Golf bag just fits across back with driver 3-wood separate.

16 Aug

Coming from a Ford Focus ST, I'm very happy with this CPO 2017 VW Golf Wolfsburg.

23 Jun

These are just examples, I still have a lot..a lot to say good about my VW Golf.

6 Jan

Tons more power than 89 GTI I owned in UK.

9 Aug

With the 1.8T engine, the basic Golf is 3/4 of GTI at 2/3 the price.

4 Feb

but don?t want to spend the GTI or focus ST money for a brand new car, the gold is an amazing alternative as i have come to find out.

12 Jun

This is a no-compromise car, and at several thousand less than the GTI I couldn't resist.

24 Apr

If you need something with better off-the-line acceleration, get the GTI or R model.

4 Jan

Items such as pop up hatch, larger RSB & Homelink mirror not available on GTI at any price so I would added them to a GTI also.

3 Jan

performance with manual is better than the 8valve GTI.

8 Dec

If you are more of a sports car person, look at the GTI.

22 Sep

I’ve had it for 3 years and there is no squeaks and rattles and everything still feels very solid.

10 Sep

A little more road noise than my 2018 Golf sedan.

27 Jan

- At 21k miles, terrible vibrations when applying brakes.

9 Aug

A bit more noise and a slightly harsher ride are worth the trade-off of this improvement.

25 May

I don't miss the diesel vibration at all.

24 Apr

It taps and rattles a little more than the old school port injection motors do.

2 Mar

but this car was so poorly made -- five times at dealer in year and a half to correct squeaking, creaking, cracking noises from panoramic sunroof.

17 Jan

Initially had some vibrations around 1200 RPM on higher gears

27 Oct

18 Jul

The Golf GTI gets far better gas mileage, has better fit & finish more available amenities a better ride, bigger cargo area and was cheaper to insure.

30 Jun

VW's GTI and Golf R are two of the best care on the market for anyone, regardless of your needs.

7 May

For comparison, my daughter drives a golf sportwagen with a base sound system, and I think it sounds just as good.

24 Jan

Yes, it is stiffer than the GOLF.

8 Jun

Best car I've ever owned and like my other GTI will get more than 200,000 miles before I'll move on from.

17 Jan

GTI is among the contenders for "best" mass-produced combustion engine car of all time.

4 Nov

I've had my GTI for about 8 months, and it has been quite the game-changer for me as a car owner.

16 Aug

For a used 2018 GTI SE, (I write this in Aug of 2020), if you find a mint one for $25K, consider yourself lucky, because these cars are amazing, and they should hold their value because they are so sweet.

For the GTI, it is a very well-rounded package!

7 Jun

Being a 2017, this is offered with drive modes and normally the GTI has Eco, Normal, Sport, and Custom.

27 Apr

I wanted to get a light, somewhat economical, fun car, and the GTI was an obvious choice.

12 Mar

The GTI continues to offer an excellent blend of driving enjoyment and practicality wrapped in a package that feels more expensive than it actually is.

17 Dec

There are no regrets with either purchase and have found that the GTI in any trim level is an awesome all-around performance car, comfortable and great on long trips.

4 Nov

For one, the sunroof occasionally starts to make awful creaking sounds.

19 Apr

The blower motor makes a loud chirping noise when it is cold outside.

30 Jan

Areas for improvement: shifter lacks consistent precision; sunroof creaks after less than 1000 miles.

4 Nov

26 Jul

VW has also cheaped out on some parts, leading to cracking, such as the oil pan and the timing cover.

28 Nov

In fact, I live back in the country where the roads can be pretty rough, and it has not even developed a rattle in 40k miles.

27 Aug

Punches well above its pay grade and makes neat farting noises.

25 Feb

No interior trim pieces breaking off, no squeaks and rattles, and no engine issues.

25 Oct

Even with fairly sporty suspension and 18 inch wheels (40 series tires), the structure is never rattled.

2 Jul

It's feels tight and solid, like it's got rubber washers everywhere to eliminate rattles.

22 Jun

However, the worst part of this car, is the absurd level of noise when driving with the rear windows down. Some of you will say, "oh, all cars do that."

17 Jun

There are a few rough edges, like engine noise and the stiff ride which are part of the car's charm.

2 May

The doors close with a “thunk” and road noise is admirably dampened.

4 Nov

VW denied my warranty claim to fix it, so it's just been looking janky since.

7 Sep

Apart from some issues with the heater when the car was new (fixed under warranty) the only issue is with the hard plastic on the centre stack, I am 5' 10" and my right knee just kills me as it contacts this hard edge.

26 Jul

but VW has not recalled them yet, so this is an out of pocket fix considering many '16 models will be out of warranty soon.

10 Nov

I purchased the car as a CPO from a lease from a VW dealer, so far put on 4k miles only issue was with the drivers side power window 1 touch was replaced under warranty. .

25 Sep

We did have to replace the water pump (covered under our extended warranty) and have had a few minor issues with the push-button start and window controllers

16 Sep

Aside from the fact that it's absurd to have a powertrain warranty that doesn't cover this, why the heck is a 3 yr old car leaking oil?!

4 Jun

Ridiculous issues that had they not occurred under warranty would have put my repair bills at at least 2,500 additional annually.

2 Aug

Update : water pump and thermostat housing cracked and were replaced under warranty.

27 Jan

Neither warranty nor car insurance is covering our damages.

27 Sep

Now reliability is a concern, because all GTI's have a poor reputation for being trouble free in the long term, and in fact at 800 miles I had to get the front right LED lamp assembly replaced under warranty.

Transmission problems

28 Jun

the transmission is also less desireable.other than that it is still a quality hatchback.

7 Mar

I find the lag in upshift between 2nd and 3rd to be frustrating at times,

27 Sep

Had I been able to get it with a manual, I'd be supremely happy, as I'd say the only flaw in this otherwise fine machine is the odd and irritating shifting of the auto transmission.

12 Aug

My only gripe is the transmission.

20 Jun

The second complain is down-shifting of an automatic transmission: especially at lower gears, when downshift occurred the sound and the vibration comming from transmission is to much, almost feels as some sort of malfunction.

5 Apr

My other complaint (minor) is the automatic transmission down shifting could be smoother.

9 Jul

And the blind spot monitoring is better in the 2021 model (in 2017 it had very dim lights which made it essentially useless on a sunny day).

8 Sep

After 5 years of ownership the only negatives I can identify is a blind spot over my left shoulder, which is common with small hatchbacks.

This is my third VW golf, I love these cars.

12 May

I tested all the hatch back cars on the market and all Golf models and the GTI S model..stock, is all you need.

29 Dec

but the feel, acceleration, braking, and ride quality are all better in the Mk 7 GTI than the Mk 6 Golf R.

8 Jun

Best car I've ever owned and like my other GTI will get more than 200,000 miles before I'll move on from.

4 Nov

I've had my GTI for about 8 months, and it has been quite the game-changer for me as a car owner.

30 Sep

The Volkswagen Golf GTI is a great car.

16 Aug

For a used 2018 GTI SE, (I write this in Aug of 2020), if you find a mint one for $25K, consider yourself lucky, because these cars are amazing, and they should hold their value because they are so sweet.

27 Apr

I wanted to get a light, somewhat economical, fun car, and the GTI was an obvious choice.

17 Jul

Have owned my 2016 GTI for 3 years now and what a great vehicle.

22 Feb

My GTI has been the most fun to drive!

17 Jan

2016 GTI with 22k Miles 6 Speed Manual This car is very impressive.

3 May

The GTI offers the best balance performance engineering and versatility on the market.

3 Mar

Love my Golf GTI.

4 Nov

VW denied my warranty claim to fix it, so it's just been looking janky since.

25 Sep

We did have to replace the water pump (covered under our extended warranty) and have had a few minor issues with the push-button start and window controllers

4 Apr

With the warranty it cost me 100 bucks to repair.

10 Sep

but don’t warrant 4 doors for a single driver / commuter.

Ridiculous issues that had they not occurred under warranty would have put my repair bills at at least 2,500 additional annually.

8 Aug

For me the biggest drawback to owning a VW is dealing with VW when something goes wrong with the car, and believe me, something will go wrong during the warranty period.

10 Jun

Be advised: changing the car battery may require a re-setting of the electronics/computer by the dealer as weird malfunctions can crop up immediately after switching out the battery.

12 Nov

I had to replace the cutch due to the salve cilynder failing and polluting the clutch with brake fluid, that was a 2400.00 repair event

8 Aug

31 Jan

but the the DSG transmission suffered a catustrophic failure at 1692 miles.

4 Nov

For one, the sunroof occasionally starts to make awful creaking sounds.

15 Jun

although I gave the car only a Good rating overall due to a rough ride at times and some wind noise around the Driver side front window, which coincidentally I also noticed on a used one I test drove.

4 Nov

"Repaired" a few times for a suspension creaking noise that couldn't be diagnosed/fixed.

8 Aug

VW seems to be unable to design a door and side window that doesn't either rattle or have an irritating air leak.

27 Mar

At -2F engine noise "enhanced" by Soundaktor added a sound of ripped speaker to its tune which went away when temperature went up to +3F. 3.

4 Nov

Overall, I can't think of a better sporty hatchback with an automatic transmission for this kind of money.

14 Sep

Transmission problems

31 Aug

The power, the suspension/chassis, the transmission, the interior.

7 Mar

N/A

8 Aug

At 15k miles the transmission developed an oil leak out of the input shaft seal.

8 Jun

but throw it into sport mode with a quick down-shift of the transmission stick and the engine quickly switches to high-revs and allows for the aggressive acceleration GTI owners are used to.

31 Jan

but the the DSG transmission suffered a catustrophic failure at 1692 miles.

Really no reason to choose the 2021 Golf over its competition.

17 Jun

The Golf is the perfect size for me and just a little nicer than other hatchbacks the same size.

13 Jun

I'm a Golf believer!

25 Apr

I love the vw golf it is such a cool and fun car to drive, as well as super fuel efficient.

4 Feb

The TDI Golf is just a phenomenal car.

14 Dec

This VW Golf TDI SEL is the car that was looking for.It has everything.

20 Aug

The Golf was the only car that I felt was excellent.

14 Aug

I had a VW diesel golf years ago and so glad to return to one!

14 Aug

Golf TDI is a joy to drive.

14 Jun

My last purchase was a TDI Golf, part of the diesel issue.

25 Aug

though it is not a "sports car" (like the GTI model) it does hold the road with great stability and manouvers responsively.

14 Feb

Whether you pick a TDI, TSI 1.8, GTI, or R in the US, they're all great fun to drive and are extremely practical.

23 Oct

Handling for a non-GTI version still makes it fun to drive.

9 Jul

- The muffler is awfully loud, and when the engine is running at about 1,500 revs under mild load, it comes into resonance with the engine which produces very annoying noise.

28 Jan

Amazing car, only issue I have is a slight wind noise at speeds greater than 35 mph,

17 Apr

Car has a quiet cabin little road noise.

6 Jun

New rattle in rear seat and perhaps the first hint of a suspension problem, front driver's side.

26 Sep

The only issue I've encountered was the suspension squeaking, which was quickly taken care of under warranty.

14 Jul

Other issues with the car include front brake rotors warped, (Dealer machined them true, under warranty) a noise from the drivers side front suspension when turning (Dealer can't find what it causing it) engine under tray fell off after an oil change.

14 Sep

All the bins are lined to stop rattles hood is lined has a strut to hold it up not a cheap metal rod.

9 Jul

And the blind spot monitoring is better in the 2021 model (in 2017 it had very dim lights which made it essentially useless on a sunny day).

11 Mar

Overall pleased except for the EPC warning light which nobody able to diagnose and the gas mileage isn't up to what expected.

But 4000 miles in a check engine light indicated an emissions issue.

Headlights are not as powerful as on my Jetta, high beam is pretty much useless.
