Reviews for 2012 Volkswagen Golf
Quality, highly advanced car
Hi -- As per CarMax's request, here's a brief review of my new car. First, its the most technically advanced car I've ever driven or owned. I just noticed, for example, that the intermittent setting on the windshield wipers adjusts its rate according to the speed of the car. The mileage on this TDI vehicle is incredible: ~ 45 mpg highway, but maybe a third less than that for the city. The only major complaints I have so far are that it stalls out rather easily; I thought with a diesel engine, it would be difficult to stall, but it does so if you look at it crooked, it seems. Second, there are rather large blind spots. I live in fear that I'm going to hit something. Otherwise, its a terrific automobile. I'm glad I own it.
This car blends sportiness with everyday use. That's what I wanted when I bought it and that's what I get. Fuel mileage isn't as good as most contemporary vehicles but I get 25 mpg combined.
Fantastic car with many pros
The Golf R is a great car. Subtle, but handsome looks, brilliant interior and the general feel of quality just shows everywhere. Daily driving it is comfortable, beautifully equipped and rides very well. Once you decide to give it a bit of a push and get out on some winding roads, it just completely changes. The four wheel drive system provides an astonishing amount of grip while the turbo charged 2.0L engine surges once above 3000 RPM all the way to redline. It gives you a gentle push back in the seat and it wants to get to that next corner as quick as it can. Brakes are fantastic and slow you just as quickly. Four six feet people can sit in it in comfort without issue and the interior feels more like a luxury car then hot hatch.
