2011 Volkswagen Golf 2.5L 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl 6A)


Fun with utility thanks to its hatchback nature, but it does fall short in a few ways that may be a deal breaker for some.

Road noise - It may be the result of being a small hatch' or the fact that there seems to be no sound insulation, but the interior of this car is loud.
When I say loud, I mean very loud.
Driving over concrete or rough pavement will make you plead for mercy.

The soft materials are nice but the construction is lacking.
Interior rattles abundant, loud engine noises, suspension squeaks and creaks, thin paint (chips constantly).

Comfort: Nice sport seats but uncomfortable on long drives.

Deal Breaker:
25mpg (hwy+city) in a small car (VW can do better).

Best Features

Fun factor

Worst Features

-Fix the (door, dash, headliner) squeaks and rattles. -Insulate the engine better. -Fix the paint thickness/hardness. -Please, please, please add sound insulation. -Time to update the engine for better mpg (I think VW is doing so in the next version golf/gti MK7).
