Volkswagen Golf Owner Car Reviews

2014 Volkswagen Golf 90 TSI Comfortline review

I bought my Golf after my 2002 Corolla was giving up and I needed a new car. I originally looked at a Corolla, however I wasn't very impressed and I'd heard VW had some good deals going. When I first test-drove the Golf, I was amazed at how it felt so solid, quick and fun, yet was reasonably priced. I adore the looks on the outside and it always puts a smile on my face...

2014 Volkswagen Golf 90TSI review

My previous ownership list includes a HiLux, Subaru, three BMWs (two 3 Series, one M5 sedan), and I have enjoyed two base-model Golfs dressed as GTIs to protect my resale, which was over 80 per cent of my original value upon a private sale for number one. The 2001 and 2014 models feature classic styling that makes them head-turners...

2016 Volkswagen Golf 92TSI review

As an upgrade, I was looking for a vehicle that looks nice, is well connected (technology-wise), and fuel efficient. I compared the Honda Civic, Mazda 3 and Volkswagen Golf in their base models. The things that I enjoy most about the Volkswagen Golf: - Performance: The car is fun to drive (for myself at least) and the steering is very direct and responsive...

2014 Volkswagen Golf GTI Performance review

As a bald-headed bloke soon to turn 50, and recently been bitten by the high repair costs of an E90 330i BMW, the Golf GTI appealed as both a car for my wife to use during the week, and for us to both enjoy during weekends. It’s March 2018, and we’ve now travelled 52,000km without any issues, zero warranty claims or any really annoyances...

2015 Volkswagen Golf R review

I purchased this car in 2015. I love fast cars, but didn't want anything too big in size as I'm only a small female. I drove the GTI, GTI Performance and the Scirocco R, which were all great, but nothing compared to the power and comfort of the Golf R. I loved the look of the car both inside and out...

2017 Volkswagen Golf R review

Motoring journalists just don’t get it. Whenever I read an article about the Golf R, it always seems to involve a racetrack and a comparison with a Focus RS, Honda Type R or some other hardcore device. The reality is track performance has no relevance to the 99 per cent of car enthusiasts. I feel the reviewers are missing something obvious...

2017 Volkswagen Golf 110 TSI Highline review

A family medical situation earlier this year forced us to recently upgrade our 2010 Mazda 6 diesel wagon (a manual, which we loved) to a car with an automatic transmission – our first automatic in over 14 years! As a family with three young boys we love station wagons as they’re practical, good to drive and not SUVs...

2016 Volkswagen Golf 92 TSI review

The Volkswagen Golf needs no introduction. A perennial favourite among the new car consumer looking for quality, Euro chic at more mainstream pricing, and modest timeless styling, the Golf has a long and storied history in the Australian marketplace over its many years all the way up to the introduction of the Mark 7.5 Golf introduced in July 2017...

2008 Volkswagen Golf GTi Review

I was looking to buy a first car which would be fun and looked good but would also never let me down. It was safe to say it was love at first sight when I saw my car. It had everything I wanted in a car, plus a few optional extras hard to find in cars in the 14 to 15 thousand dollar range, such as sun roof; sat nav and premium sound system...

2003 Volkswagen Golf GTi review

As a teenager, it seems few things actually matter in life – having a ‘fully sick’ turbocharged car is one of the few things you think actually does matter. Here in South Australia, as well as in a number of other states, turbocharged cars were outlawed for P-platers because, it's believed, that tiny little bit of boost was too much for the small minds and feeble hands of rookie drivers to manage...

2016 Volkswagen Golf 92 TSI Comfortline review

Before I purchased my new Golf TSI Comfortline in March this year, I spent many hours searching various motoring websites for car reviews, and Forum sites for a list of cars that might suit me (e.g.; Mazda3, Kia Cerato, Hyundai i30 and Elantra, Toyota Corolla – and I even test-drove a Kia Si Sportage Diesel)...
