Purchased As New
I bought my 2013 Golf Wagon (Jetta SportWagon in the USA) 3 months ago. It's the tdi Highline with the DSG transmission. It wasn't until after I'd purchased it that I realized you're not allowed to tow anything with the DSG. Realizing that, I would have opted for the 6 speed manual so I could tow my ATV. Having traded in my 2009 F150 King Ranch, I thought I may be making too much of a step down, but I've come to love my VW. The build quality is excellent. All of the materials used are of a very good quality. The car has a very solid feel. That said, the seats feel more like vinyl than the advertised leather. The car handles very nicely and the brakes are very strong. The cargo area is adequate for my photography business, but lower the rear seats and there's a ton of room. Fuel mileage has been very good, but I'm told it'll improve as the engine breaks in. The transmission makes very quick and precise shifts and rev matches on the downshifts. My only wishes would be that the front seats be completely power, not just the recline; a little more substantial leather and some sort of tow ability. Perhaps an AWD option for those in the north would be a nice touch too. There's not a lot to choose from in this segment. I looked at a bunch of small SUV's before buying this car. The Mazda CX5 came closest, but it's gasoline engine is inadequate for the vehicle. If Mazda had brought their diesel to N.A., I'd probably be driving one of those.
