Vehicle2013 Volkswagen GTI Wolfsburg Edition 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)
ReviewPurchased brand new, great deal on price at $1050 under invoice. No cost tint and other extras. Sales process excellent. But am very disappointed. Took car out for first drive still using the "free" gas provided at delivery. After driving just over 100 miles out town in southern Arizona heat, the car stalled. Happened five times. Engine malfunction light came on steady amber. Four times the engine stalled in stop and go traffic. One time it turned itself off on the highway at 55mph! Car has 242 original miles on it. Got it back to the dealer where they are checking it out. Have to say that I do not trust this new car at all. So far, the dealer has been very responsive, will provide updates!
Best FeaturesThe ride and handling is great. Very comfortable car for both me (6' 1"") and my wife (5' 3"). Engine and DSG transmission were excellent for the first 241 miles. Interior is very quiet when it is coasting to the shoulder of the road.
Worst FeaturesUh.... Would prefer to have engine run when expected - not shut off in intersections and on the highway without warning.
