I have a 2017 VW Golf Alltrack (wagon) in SEL trim. Only about 5,000 miles on it now and it's been in for a repair (unsuccessful) already. It has an annoying rattling sound from the front driver's side; sounds like suspension issue to me. It comes and goes and is especially notable on bumpy roads. But it handles well. Mechanic said it was the dirt shield in the wheel well and tightened it (?). He admitted the noise was still there but couldn't do anything about it. Now going to take it to a different VW dealer (an hour's drive). The electronics are horrible; the GPS is the worst I've ever had and rarely leads me in the correct direction, the Bluetooth is slow and glitchy and often doesn't understand verbal commands, had a few electronics glitches that seemed to have worked themselves out. The handling is nice and sporty, engine is o.k., transmission (dual-clutch) was initially jerky at slow speeds, but now has smoothened out and is pretty good (better than most CVT's and those horrible Chrysler 9-speed trannies). Comfort and upscale appearance is nice. Very little storage room (cubbies, etc.) and the headlights do not look far enough down the road so nighttime driving is scary. I don't know about long-term reliability, but will probably unload this car when close to warranty being up.
