2012 Volkswagen GTI 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
Review
I just bought the 2012 GTI last week. So far: non-linear acceleration i.e. the pedal has about two inches of dead travel before the car reacts and then it engages and the car shoots forward, which makes it very dicey in traffic. Over rough pavement the dash and the A pillars buzz like a hornet. I couldn't have a bigger case of buyer's remorse. Will VW fix this? Maybe they will surprise me; if not I'll follow every nuance of the Ohio Lemon Law and they can buy it back.
Favorite Features
The interior is well equipped. Fit and finish are nice, which makes me wonder how I could have all of the buzzing in the dash over rough pavement.
Suggested Improvements
Won't know until VW either this right.

Sounds like you got a poorly repaired salvage. Definitely a pile of atypical problems, none of which are common at all. That would be a lemon. Buy it used from a used car dealer?
