I was considering the Jetta as a replacement for our family car, but down at the showroom, the CO expressed more interest in the Golf instead.
Would appreciate feedback from the bros and sis driving the current Golf.
In particular, Internet has a lot of negative reviews about the DSG gearbox. Does anyone driving the Mk 7 Golf have any issues so far?
Thanks in advance.

Your's still new..

We must make a wise decision on getting a reliable car instead of just the outlook like MK 7. With the new rule kicks in, you will need to bear with all the headaches for the next 10 yrs unless your pocket is deep enough to change car within 1 or 2 yrs time.

My 2 cents. laugh.gif

I'm wondering why VW didn't bring in the manual version. Most of the British reviews of the mk7 were done with a manual car. mellow.gif

Surprisingly, I saw the VW Golf (in DSG) is quite popular in Japan.

Volvo and Jaguar is non existent there.

Managed to see one Renault Megane Cabrio too.

Question is... Why pay good money for some product that may fail u unexpectedly? I guess people will not learn until it hits them. Safety is of utmost importance to me. Thats why i ditched my VW for another make.

You should check out the experience VAGSG guys had with VCS. Denial, accusation, etc just to get their butts out of responsibilities. angry.gif
