Sad but true

2022 Volkswagen Golf GTI Autobahn 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 7AM)

I’ll really like everything about the car’s chassis, engine, motor, and interior. I dislike the overly complex infotainment system with no mobs for radio or HVAC. It’s hard to concentrate on driving with this system. Hopefully they will add some physical knobs since it seems to be universally abhorred.

Not a MK7

Totaled my MK7, naturally the new GTI was my go to choice. I should’ve stayed with the old model. Performance and driving dynamics are solid. Styling is very handsome. That’s where it stops for me, the infotainment system and lack of buttons is infuriating. The MK8.5 will be close to perfect if VW takes an evolutionary approach rather than the current revolution. Won’t be keeping this one.

I had the MK7 and now the MK8 GTI and I am really impressed with the performance of this car, also the touch screen and haptic controls are really easy to use once you know where everything is.

5500 miles and still having fun

I have owned many cars the last few years, all of them just to take me from Point A to Point B. But then the pandemic struck and I realized life needs to be about fun. I own a electric vehicle and from a budgeting perspective, it make a lot more sense to drive the electric - especially since I get free electricity. But look I haven’t traveled as much the last few years and being inside has driven crazy. The electric car or should I say appliance just got me from Point A to Point B. I work hard and I deserve the fun of driving, and since I don’t have money for a Porsche right now, then the GTI will have to do. Actually I could have waited for the Golf R but didn’t know how long wait would have been, and between the extra cost of premium fuel and higher insurance with Golf R - the GTI made better financial sense. It is much better suited for a daily drive than the R. I have now put 5500 miles on it, going to month number 5. It is the funnest car I have owned.

Stay away

I have had four VW iterations of the Golf in my life, a 2000 Golf, a 2017 Rabbit, a 2015 GTI SE, and the 2022 Mk8 GTI Autobahn. As you can tell I kept the first three for a lot of years. The 2022 GTI I only kept for nine months. Why? for problematic and unreliable electronic issues, ranging from sensors not working, functions turning on and off on their own, screens freezing unresponsive, faulty Harman Kardon sound system, faulty keyless entry, etc. BUT the absolute worst? Was when I was told by three different VW dealers there was NOTHING they could do to fix the problems, that they were aware of many other owners facing the same issues but that VW had not issued a fix, so I had to suck it up. So I got rid of it and pray for whoever buys it ass a CPO
