Excellent desing, questionable quality

2010 Volkswagen Golf PZEV 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 6A)


Bought this car after happily driving 95 Golf for 10 years, so this '10 Golf has very big shoes to fill. The car looks sharp, feels very comfortable and very confident on the road. It has just right amount of power not to be sluggish and not to waste fuel at the same time. What I am not so exited about is workmanship quality. It does not live to the hype so far. First, there was annoying air hissing from the door, because the rubber seal does not fit well. The dealer had to tighten the door lock. Then the b-pillars trims started crackling and clicking at ~2k miles. Other people on WV forums also reported water draining issues from the doors. I really hope problems stop here.

Best Features

- Exterior/interior design, the car looks and feels rich - The engine hits the perfect spot between power and fuel consumption - Transmission - gentle and fuel-smart when set to "D", mean and aggressive when set to "S"

Worst Features

- Quality control! - Noise insulation. I hear too much of wheels roaring and wind whistling (eternal Golfs problem...) - More sophisticated seats and wiper control. Even my Hyundai does better in these areas. - DSG transmission on gas models.
