I'm new to this website and I'm thrilled to have read so many great posts.
We currently have 1.8 TSI 2014 Jetta Comfortline (SE in the US) & 2015 1.8 TSI Golf Comfortline. I am giving away my Jetta to my parents as they need a new car. I'm shopping around for a new car for my family. I love my wife's Golf, but she's has some minor issues already with her car. Her radio turns off unexpectedly and there is a tick in her engine that VW cannot seem to fix. My Jetta has been great so far, but it's also fairly new.
On that note, I've driven most of its rivals 2017 Hyundai Elantra, 2016 Civic 1.5, 2016 Subaru Impreza, 2016 Mazda 3, 2016 Kia Forte5, and 2016 Corolla but in my opinion the 2016 Golf TSI wins. I'm afraid to purchase it though due to its poor reliatibility. Should I be that scared? Civic EX-L with 1.5 engine wasn't bad, but it's not a Golf.
