      Apologies if we’ve done this before, I saw it on another forum and thought it would be fun.

      I've owned three different MK7 Golfs.

      A 2014 Golf 1.4 TSI with a 6 sp manual, built in Germany.
      A 2015 GTI DSG basic trim (similar to the "S" sold in the US) built in Mexico.
      A 2017 GTI DSG top trim (similar to the Autobahn sold in the US) built in Brazil.

      Two interesting things I have to note having owned these:
      - It's crazy how "modern" the MQB platform is and how the MK7 cars feel. For a car that is nearly 7 years old in terms of project/design, it still holds up well in comparison to most of the stuff that is being built/sold these days. The interior is such a great place to be.
      - People make a big fuss about the EU built VWs but, having owned all of these, I have to say the build quality was pretty much even across all of them. Some "de-contenting" on the later cars (e.g. the 2014 TSI had an electronic handbrake and autohold, which were absent in the Mexican and Brazilian cars) but, aside from that, build and interior quality remained great.

      Why I had them? The cost/benefit ratio of these is hard to beat in Brazil (where I live) if you want a fun/practical daily that is reliable and does not break the bank.

      Why I moved away from them? 6 years driving different iterations of the same car got a bit boring. Needed to try something different.

      2 Civics currently 2006 Si and 2012 LX
      2 Grand Ams both V6 neither had leaky LIM gaskets
      2 Corollas wife had a 2004 and a 2009. The former was an excellent car, the latter felt cheap and was utterly devoid of any personality.

      The only repeat model I've owned is VW Golfs. We've had 4 of them. 2010 TDI wagon with a stick, 8 years of trouble free high mpg motoring. 2015 MK7 hatch with a stick, still have it, has not given us a single issue. 2018 Golf Alltrack with a stick, sold, hated the handling of it and had issues with the sunroof and transmission. 2019 Golf R with a stick, perhaps my favorite car I've ever owned, such a sorted driving experience and oh so real world fast.

      Thinking of this post it feels strange to me, I was a died it the wool Japanese car fan for a long time, I never thought I'd be a dubber. Yet here I am.

      And some pics for good measure.

      3 Accords (all 92-93s), 1 Civic and my TLX
      2 Maximas, 1 350Z, 1 G37S

      Looking to make a hard pivot away from Asia for my next purchase. Between what I've owned and driven I think I've had my fill for a good while.

      I owned a 2011 VW Golf 2.5 and a 2015 VW Golf TDI. I was sad to the hear the regular Golf was not going to make it to the US...

      I now drive a Corolla and have been very happy with it driving wise and styling wise, so I could certainly see myself purchasing another one. That is if this model doesn't bite the dust too. God I hate trucks and suvs so much
