2013 Volkswagen Golf Hatchback 2.5L PZEV 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 5M)


Review

I've owned this Golf for 3 1/2 years and the only problem, which is a big one, is the well-publicized diesel emission control scandal. I get low 30s gas mileage in town and nearly 50 MPG on the road, which is great. I'm probably going to trade it for a gas powered VW since I've had great luck with the VWs and Audis over the years. I still don't know for sure what VW is going to do about the emission problem. If an inexpensive fix would be available, I'd probably keep it. It's a blast to drive.

2013 Volkswagen Golf Hatchback 2.5L PZEV 4dr Hatchback w/Convenience (2.5L 5cyl 6A)


Review

Now I know why Golf is so popular in Europe after driving a while.
The car is not fast; engine not quiet and the looking not sharp. Overall it has nice build quality, comfortable ride, and good handling. Very solid in and out. Many
upgrades and detailed features not mentioned in specs.
We had plenty of time researching before final decision. Extensively compared with Toyota Camry and RAV4, and compared within VW models. Passat feels so heavy, GTI is too dear for a collage kids; base Tiguan model looks plain and higher model is expensive. TDI does not have many benefits in America since diesel is expensive.
Prefered waiting for the next generation Golf, but wife insisted buying.


Best Features

The first time not excited when buying a new car, but will never regret. So far driving 2k, and mpg is 25 for 75% local rush hour driving. Solid build, smooth driving, nice chrome edgings, simple and elegant dashboard, trip computers


Worst Features

Extra home link is expensive, should be part of convenience package, alloy wheel should be an option.
