Got a new Golf Mk6, disappointing..
We've got a Golf Mk6 2.0tdi GT on a 3day loan whilst my oh chooses a new company car. I was really looking forward to it after hearing all these supposed quality improvements & it was a dead cert to get compared to other cars in her price range.
Well, after an hours hoon in it I am seriously disappointed. Interior plastic is still well below the quality of the A3 & the cabin still feels cheap inside. It is just vast amounts of cheap plastic. The supposedly great new 2.0 diesel engine is very disappointing. Once it gets going it is quick, but there is at least a 1-2 second turbo lag when flooring the throttle & runs out of revs very quickly.
Don't get me wrong it is a fantastic looking car & I love the stiff suspension and handling (definitley going to fit 18's & eibachs to mine now) but performance and interior quality were a real let down.
A real shame. May have to look into (gulp) bmw's now :(
