What Owners Say
"Water pump started leaking coolant. It's a common issue on MK7 Golf vehicles. It was quite expensive because of water pump bousing has to be replaced along with the water pump."Anonymous, IL (2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen S 1.8-L 4 Cyl turbo)
"Water gets inside my car. It has ruined books and papers that were in my car. This also happened with my 2013 Volkswagon and my earlier one. I was forced to buy this one in a color I don't like because it was the only one available after the 2013 car had to be turned in because of the diesel scandal which I have not gotten over. The main problem with the leak is in the winter when I can't see out of the windows. The frost and clouding of the windshield is in the inside. They tell me to bring it in and I would but they have discontinued the ride home because of covid-19. And I don't want to sit there all day, even if I could."Anonymous, IL (2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen SE 1.8-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"I'm not sure about this. But somehow the water has to enter the car. Yesterday drops fell on my lap. This fogging and freezing could cause an accident because its hard to get the inside ice off. Scraper doesn't work well inside."Anonymous, IL (2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen SE 1.8-L 4 Cyl turbo)
