    Hey from Maryland. Recently bought the Alltrack after months of research. I was debating between a Subaru and the Alltrack, but I think the Alltrack has more bang for the buck. This is my second VW. I also own a 2012 Tiguan. I'm here to seek knowledge. Thanks

    Hi from Australia. Bought my MY2017 Alltrack last year (only came in 1 trim at the time, would be equivalent to the "premium" model today) and 'mostly' loving it

    I know it's corny but I actually do say to a stranger, G'day mate! I'm in Canberra, Australia's national capital. My Golf Alltrack is only a couple of months old... I don't like my Alltrack, I LOVE it!
    However I would like to install some LED spotlights in front of the upper grille.
    Cheers

    Hi Saleen. My last two cars were a Suburu Outback and after that a Golf wagon (estate I think you call it). Anyway I reckon the Golf Alltrack has the best of both. Cheers from Down Under. Jason

    New member, bought the car two days ago - a 2018 manual, in Canada. Was used, as it had been returned by a Tdi buyback customer who decided he didn't want a standard shift, after all. 1830ks on clock when we took possession. Traded in a beloved 2015 Golf sportswagon Tdi under buyback. I loved that car, and had a great first trip in it, days after purchase, in September 2015 to Newfoundland. Was in Gros Morne National Park when I heard the news about the emissions scam. Kept the Tdi for another 100,000 clicks, and turned it in with a slightly broken heart this past Monday, showing 15 kilometres range on the computer. Planned to keep it for a decade at least, but it was out of warranties due to mileage, and I just thought I was one major repair away from regretting leaving $22k on the table. So a new chapter begins. The Alltrack is beautiful, and here's hoping it's at least 4/5ths f the car the Tdi was. Look forward to reading aboutother drivers' experience with the vehicle. Thanks
    Rob

    You could try going to customize road mode and change steering only to sport. I did that today, and the steering response feels more like my 2015 Sportswagon - more connected to road, and not as light.

My last car 1999.5 Mk4 Jetta GLS I've owned it for 15yrs time for a change it's been a great car but at 265kmi it was time.
    A reminder for oil change has been displaying the last few days says something like 29 days til oil change. Not sure what that's about as it has so few miles on it. Probably oil change after break in period (I'm assuming).
    There's probably something in owners manual about it but at 432 pages it's quite a lot to consume and the way it's written it's got me turning pages back and forth very daunting to say the least. I still don't know all the features yet.haha
    I'm kind of disappointed in the feel of it, the steering feels vague and the suspension too. I'm coming from a car that has H&R springs and Koni yellow shocks which handles very nice and tight.
    It seems the newer cars (this car) have mostly let electronics taken over electric assisted power steering witch I'm sure is the reason for the vague steering feel it's just something I'll have to get used to (and I am) but it's a far cry from feeling connected like my Jetta.
    Overall I really like the Alltrack and glad I bought it (no regrets) I can't wait for purpose built shocks/springs for this car everything I've seen people doing is using springs and shocks meant for GTI's?Golf R's or some other variant of the Golf but nothing so far MADE for the Alltrack...I hope that changes.
    My dream would be a coil over type system that would go from zero lowering to 2.5" that way car could sit low for summer and raised for winter.
    Anyway...hi to everyone!
    Replying to this quote. Sorry for confusion on using the forum ... Pleading first reponse

    Hello from Vermont

    I ordered my Alltrack in July because I wanted a 6mt in white and couldn?t find one. I picked it up Thursday night, which was a month earlier than expected. It had 10 miles on it when I drove off the lot and only has 258 now, so I have to get out and drive it!

    I had a 2016 Golf Sportwagen that I traded in. Before that I had two Golfs and, the first car I ever bought, a 1989 Fox.

    Hi! I love my first VW, a 2017 Alltrack SEL in Silk Blue Metallic with Marrakesh Brown interior. Honestly, it's the best car I've ever had and I love driving it- although i still haven't hit the 10K mark. Bought it new in April of 2017, when, before I went to the Subaru dealer, my son insisted that we stop at the VW dealer- never made it any further.
