  • Expensive for a Golf, but a steal for what you get

    By Al on Saturday, July 18, 2015

    This car is perfect for my wife and I. We're city dwellers in our 50's who wanted a car with serious performance, yet would be easy to live with. Yes, there are faster cars built today, but seriously, it's as quick as supercars were not that long ago; and it sticks like glue to the road. When not succumbing to "my inner child" the car is as practical as any Golf. It's big on the inside with enough seat room for two adults in the back for anything shorter than a day-long trip. Put those rear seats down and you have the cavernous cargo area which Golfs are known for. The interior exudes quality--I liked it better than the interior of an Audi S3 which I test drove. And with the Dynamic Chassis Control set to "Comfort" it rides as smooth as the Audi as well. But if you put the DCC into its "Race" setting, it truly is ready to take a lap around the nearest track; even more sporty feeling than the S3. This is a car where you can have your cake and eat it too. It's also a sharp looking car; all of its lines are unified and seem to be there for a purpose. Vw has been building versions of this car for 40 years now, and that fine-honing of its basic design shows here. This latest iteration of the Golf R is lower, wider, and longer than the previous one, yet is still small enough to be a godsend when looking for parking spaces in the city. If you're looking for a car that looks like a race car, you'll be disappointed with the R, as while it has some subtle sporty design elements (bigger air openings in the grill, quad exhaust pipes, 19" wheels), it doesn't look like something with big wings on the back which a college kid would be happy squirting around town in. It looks "adult," just not a boring one. That said, I can't tell you how often I get guys in their teens and twenties taking long lusting looks at my R, some even taking pictures of it. Go figure. I can sum up owning this car best by saying that it's not just a great car which can handle the driving needs of daily life with aplomb, but it's also a car that after half a year of ownership, I still look forward to getting behind the wheel each time.
  • Practical, fast and fun!

    Negatives: Went into limp mode on freeway and had to be towed to dealership at 3K miles. Diagnosis was bad coil on cylinder 4. The front tweeters for the supposed upgraded Fender audio have serious static. Have had two flat tires due to puncture side wall with nail and staple. I think the 19" wheels have thinner walls than other options. Absent spare tire was fixed by buying the Audi A3 spare donut which added some convenience on the second puncture. Carplay hand off with iPhone is frequently not smooth. Turning radius isn't as tight as base Golf - already scuffed front rims. Got uncomfortable on my drive from San Jose to San Diego but that could be a reflection of my age as well :) Positives: The car is so fast and handles so well. I am 6'2" and carry my two kids in the back seats (1 booster, 1 car seat) frequently and never feel cramped for leg space up front. Car is a little low for me to exit - I find myself using the door frame to pull me up and out. DCC is great. I can put it in comfort mode for a smooth ride with my wife, kids and beagle, and then normal or race mode when I'm alone or with my friends. I didn't buy this car for good gas mileage so no comment there. It is fun and I love to drive it. Dual climate control and streaming bluetooth are surprisingly useful. At 7k miles I did stage 1 tuning to boost up to ~340 HP and it has been a blast. Night and day difference to me but wife still hasn't noticed because it putt-putts around town with good manners. It turns a few heads when showing its speed but otherwise passes for a common Golf and doesn't draw much attention that a luxury label or exotic car would. It's nice to fly under the radar. And boy does it fly.

    Owned this car for just over a year has been a wonderful dd ..cross country trips.. very comfortable. a real sleeper car, you dont get noticed unless you want to. surprises everyone who gets in and finish in the interior is on par with much more expensive cars.. average 26mpg around town.. and 30 on the highway not bad for 300hp
