Found this particular model (R-line w/lighting package))with 16,500 miles on it. Bought it 4 months ago, put 2,500 miles on it with road trip to Florida...no issues (and upper 30's on mpg highway)5, 000 miles overall. Ride and comfort good, lots of storage/leg room, technology excellent (had 2009 Jetta prior), and many comments on good looks. Still have year to go on warranty, don't expect any issues.
Bought this vehicle for the awd in the winter and the fun summer performance. Great car, expensive, but for what I was looking for worth it to me. I used to have a mazdaspeed 3 and the golf r puts the spirit back into driving. The 19? wheels are unforgiving in MA (I have had to fix dents on each rim), snow tires are a must, other maintenance issues have been sporadic and fixed with software updates (like engine misfires sending the vehicle into epc mode). Others will argue BMW or Audi for the price, but, everyone drives those cars, for a unique experience that enthusiasts notice, this car is the one for you.
based on the number of problems i have had with this car I will never buy a volkswagen again. Let me list the problems. Had to have a front end alignment before warranty was up, which the dealership tried to charge me for. replaced multiple front rotors due to warping. replaced driver side caliper due to sticking. replaced passenger side a frame bushing(not cheap) now the door locks are not working correctly.. the passenger side vents blow cold air when heater is on. both tail lights burned out and these problems started as soon as the warranty was up and the car does not have 80000 miles on it.. Dont buy this car!!!!!
I worked with Jan from Carvana- she was able to explain to me the process, make sure I was comfortable with where it was at, was able to be reached and kept communication open. The pick up process went smoothly and I was able to sell my car without any glitches.
Fun daily driver. Comfortable interior.

Need gas mileage for a daily driver but still want a fun hot hatch? Interior far superior to other hatches, not styled like a hot wheels car and still a blast to drive
After visiting several of the typical dealerships I walked away confused and Unsatisfied. After visiting Carvana.com I picked out a vehicle to my liking and price point fill out the paperwork got approval I had my new vehicle delivered to my front door. Most typical dealerships you spend half a day walking away with an overpriced vehicle in an overpriced interest-rate. Carvana has made it an enjoyable experience and it can be done from the luxury of your Home. Thanks Carvana.
Absolutely love this vehicle

I should start by stating I have made some tasteful modifications to this car. Sport tunned Coilovers, ECU tune, Turbo back exhaust and an intake. This car is absolutely amazing. I'm currently making 227 whp and 267 tq on a factory clutch without incident. The 1.8 came alive with the Unitronic Stage 1+ tune and fuel mileage has actually gotten considerably better. Now getting 37mpg on average. Amazing vehicle with nearly unlimited potential.
My experience with carvana was and still is very good. I wanted to sell my can a few months ago and Madison was super nice. Undirtunately I had to cancel the sell bc of personal reasons. Now I???m again in the process of selling and Madison is super patient with me and so nice!
Car has been perfect

Quick, fun to drive and offered in manual with AWD just as I wanted. Plus I got the beautiful Lapiz Blue. Only been to service for oil change and tire rotation. It’s not cheap, but price on par with its competitors and less than some others.
This car is nearly the perfect daily driver. Sporty and fun with 300 hp, AWD, and electronically adjustable sport suspension. However, it has understated styling so your don't look like a boy racer. It can haul nearly as much as an SUV because of the hatch. Enough back seat room for two rear facing infant car seats The interior is fantastic and has Apple Car Play, Android Auto, automated cruise, lane detection, and a ton of other safety features. My only gripe is that the ride can be a tad rough with the optional 19" wheels.
We have friends & famy that swear by VW products. After driving a Toyota Matrix for 10 years and 200,000 miles we picked-up a deal on a VW Golf Sportwagon. Looks great, drives great and has all the room inside for bikes, dogs, stuff & all the things we generally have to haul around. It’s really good on gas mileage. The DCT Transmission is totally awesome and it has very good power. When you figure this is a 1.8 liter turbo 4-banger, it’s surprisingly quick. We have put 7,000 miles on it so far and are eased with it as well as our dealer!

This car I actually bought for its fuel economy.
Veyond that, however, its impressive acceleration and all the comfort features (too mant to list!) have been really great!
So I got this car to save gas, but got so much for the money!
Without hesitation (well, after checking the condition) I would but another VW Jetta in a heartbeat!
Overall I like the vehicle. The fit and finish is beautiful, it handles very well and is super comfortable for road trip’s. The cabin is super quiet and the heated seats/steering wheel is a big bonus for colder days.
My one complaint is that I feel it is severely under powered. If there was a V-6 option, I would love it.
This car has exceeded my expectations. Ride is nice, very comfortable. Love the heated seats. Blind spot warning system is great when changing lans. Very good on gas. Stereo and navigation system is awesome and definitely comes in handy on trips. Lots of trunk space.
I posted my car on Craigslist. Never heard of Caravana before. Tom Perkins called me and told me about Caravan. He send me the link. Put a few information and walaaa, got my reasonable offer for my car. I attached a picture of my drivers license and the title of the car on the website. Made appointment to have them pick up the car, gave me my check......done. Seriously, it was that easy. Tom Perkins followed up the whole time with a text how the process is going. Best service. If you want sell your car with no hassle, go with Caravan. Thanks for the best service Tom.

This small SUV was exactly what I was looking for. It handles smoothly and makes me feel safe in a vehicle that it not too small nor too large. Easy to maneuver, even when upgrading from a smaller car. It moves fast on the freeway and drives “just right “ in the city. LOVE IT!!!
I like their service. They have a lot of cars. No pressure from sales reps. I just thought their caqrs were more expensive than other places.
I love this car!

This is the most comfortable car I've owned. I wouldn't classify myself as someone who loves to drive, but since buying this car, I actually look forward to getting behind the wheel. It's fun, comfortable, stylish, and of course, functional.
I love my CPO 2017 Golf Alltrack SE. I have a few minor complaints (primarily with aesthetics and design) but nothing I wasn't aware of before I purchased. It's a joy to drive! It feels solid, stable and spirited.
Absolutely recommend! Took a total of 5 minutes once they came to my house! Whole process took less than a week! Excellent experience!! Thank you
