      This has been an interesting vehicle. We owned a 2010 for a little over a year. The brakes are horrible. Even when not warped, they simply do not stop a fully loaded vehicle in a safe distance. ...

      I totally agree. Along with the fact that this is the single worst NAV system I have ever used. Unreliable and unpredictable.

    5. 2012 Golf R red 2dr loaded low miles avail

      My 2 year love/hate relationship with my Golf R is now over. I traded it in a little over a month ago for a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara.

      I agree, along with the worry about the water pumps.

      I also do not like the fact that the Golf R revs so high when cruising at 65 mph. My wife typically asks me if it is time to shift.

      I love my 2008 R32. There is much about my Golf R that I hate.

      I would recommend that you drive the Golf R longer than a normal test drive.

      In the Golf R you are giving up the DSG, the VR6,...

      OK. I definitely miss the 6 cyl AND the DSG. The Golf R needs at least one more gear as it revs entirely too high at normal highway cruising speeds. My wife on more than one occasion has asked me...

      A proper Golf R with a six cylinder and 2 doors would be just the ticket to get me excited about buying another VW. I thoroughly love my 08 R32. My 12 Golf R, on the other hand, has been nothing...

      Looks aside (I prefer the looks of the 2-drs over the 4-drs), the door pillar on the 4-dr is right in my blind spot due to where I have to sit so I can reach the pedals.

      Fair enough. I'd recommend a MKV Golf/Rabbit as well. Those should be more in line with the target price.
