2012 Volkswagen Golf R Review

I have loved every single day of ownership of my 2013 GOLF R in Rising blue. Being in Real Estate I average between 400-500kms a week so I am impressed with complete urban driving to average between 9.8L and 10.5L to the 100km, mind you I do have a soft foot. The gearbox and engine work well together and the ratio's are well spaced however 6th gear is a tad short for highway cruising I find...

2014 Volkswagen Golf GTi Performance Review

Depending on who you ask, the Golf GTI is either a performance hot hatch bargain or a slow, overpriced, front-drive lemon. It’s fair to say that the truth lies somewhere in between - but spending copious amounts of time reading car websites assures me that is a car that polarises opinion. I’ve now had this car for almost two years and clocked up 20,000km in the process...

2015 Volkswagen Golf 103 TSI Highline Review

The exterior design is dated and bland but internally the car looks and feels quality (although you'll have to buy premium pack if you want leather upholstery and who wants a sunroof other than someone with a comb over?) Reviews often highlight good ergonomics but steering wheel controls are small and fiddly...

2013 Volkswagen Golf 90 TSI Comfortline Review

Great car - refined, balanced, economical - not as conservative as some say - would buy another one Manual great fun to drive - taught my daughter to drive in this car and she loves it Drove other cars but they did not have the finish that the golf has - I have driven bigger VWs and the golf parts are in the much more expensive cars so believe get a premium product Sometimes tricky with the electronic break on a hill start but get used to this My wife swears by car and wants a new one in three years - may Aldo look at the golf estate as this has good vfm against some of the bigger VWs I think the vw dealership could be better though they are very nice and professional they act as though they are just trying to get more money out of you which is a pity as they have good products to sell The dealerships need to lift their game as brand loyalty is important in purchasing cars and poor or misdirected service damages the brand - know people who have been put off by service not the product The golf is a great car and the comfortline is the best in the line for vfm - it'll be interesting whether any issues arise - at the moment nothing other than a bit if a sweaky clutch has been the issue - it's important that the gold holds it price and second ones are expensive Best small car on the market...

2008 Volkswagen Golf R32 Review

That sound! Guttural throb from the 3.2 V6 at idle, rising to a swarm of angry wasps, followed by a noise that can really only be described as a dog fart, as you hit the perfectly positioned (if a little small) paddle shifters and select the next cog. It's nothing short of addictive...and it sounds even better on the way back down! I've owned the MkV...

2012 Volkswagen Golf 118 TSI Comfortline Review

I've had this car since new and I definitely want to replace it when the warranty runs out in November. I can see down the track there will be transmission issues which are intermittent now and cannot be replicated for the technicians. Eg. total failure of gear engagement while negotiating turn at busy intersection...

2013 Volkswagen Golf 90 TSI Comfortline Review

First off i am a ex-technician (mechanic) who has owned half a dozen cars,worked on and repaired more than i would like to remember. And when i changed my career in 1999,i never wanted to look at another car again,but the time came in 2013 where i had to buy a new car,but i was stumped as to what to buy as i had not had an interest in cars in a long time,being covered in grease and oil for lot of years tends to do that...

2014 Volkswagen Golf 90 TSI Comfortline Review

Our decision to buy the Volkswagen Golf was influenced by three main factors. First the uncanny smoothness and quietness of the ride, second, the relatively wide opening and flat floor of the hatch - great for loading golf gear, and third, the slightly smaller and neater conservative shape which offers excellent vision all round...

2014 Volkswagen Golf 90 TSI Comfortline Review

Last year, I was thrashing out the differences between an Octavia and the Golf. In the final count back, the Golf won over with its price ($24,990 on the road, where the Skoda was shaping up for high twenties), smoother ride and interior. The price is long gone, but I appreciate the latter two every time I drive...

2010 Volkswagen Golf 118 TSI Comfortline Review

I have owned my 2010 mk6 Golf 118TSI Comfortline DSG Wagon for 4 years and 90,000km. When we were looking for a new vehicle we compared a number of compact SUV's to the golf wagon, but the boot space and comfort of the Golf won out. I have to say though, the buying process through the dealer was not pleasant, but i think it can be hit and miss when it comes down to dealers...

2010 Volkswagen Golf GTi Review

Let me preface this by stating that I’m not a die-hard, Wolfsburg-loving Volkswagen fanatic - like most of the other users on here I just love cars. I’d be just as happy to have an E82 BMW 135i coupe, Mercedes-Benz A250, Mazda 3 MPS, or Audi S3 parked in my driveway - something more than just a ‘point A to B’ car...
