Being a performance model, it probably is less reliable than the unreliable Golf. This is according to TrueDelta (Scores Yellow or at 142% repairs on the latest version of the car) and a 2 on a scale of 5 at Consumer Reports. Save your money for necessary repairs if you want this vehicle (fuel system, electronics, power accesories).

The earlier in the current generation you get, the less reliable they will be generally. 2015 will be the worst year for example. If you aren't sure about the Golf's reliability, a good alternative is the Honda Civic Type R or Civic Si. They are direct competitors.

I have a 2017 GTI Sport model with manual transmission. Zero problems after 10K miles. Not sure this fully applies to the R, but it seems to be built with care, and I'm impressed with the quality so far.
