2014 Volkswagen Golf 2.5L PZEV 4dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 6A)


My 2.5 doesn't have Bluetooth/phone capability nor a touch screen. But it has what matters most to me; a huge fun to drive personality. I put sticky 225/45/17/wheels on the car shortly after buying it. Highly recommended as it handles insane now and looks way better. The stock rubber/wheels need to go straight to Craigslist. Driven 2500 miles since new. My impressions so far: -Prefer to now drive it all the time in manual mode except on the freeway. I find manual shifting the automatic to be a lot of fun and the shifts are responsive. I also like downshifting when coming to a stop. All this with while getting to rest my left leg. -While it's not blazing "fast", it's far from slow eith

Best Features

handling, grunt of 2.5 engine, interior layout, seats...everything pretty much.

Worst Features

Gas mileage is sub-par but I hammer it all the time and still get 20-22mpg avg on regular. Drive it nicely and I'm sure I'd have mid-upper 20s. But who cares.....the car cost me less than $20K.
