2018 Alltrack S
Hi from Snowy Winter Chicago. The snow is on the melt at the moment. I have a 2018 S, that I love. It's my commuter and daily. Don't want to mod it out too much but It's my all around activity car. I had a Subaru previously but my very first new car was a 2006 VW Rabbit (that I sold when I got married). Came back to VW in 2019 because I couldn't stay away.

For now, 1998 Isuzu Oasis
After driving my kids around in a 1998 Jetta TDI manual for 20 years and then 3 years in a Nissan Leaf, I am ready to get out of town. I am looking for an Alltrack with a manual transmission. Send me hits and tips. Thank you.

2019 Alltrack SEL
2019 Alltrack SEL 6M Platinum Grey Met
Picked it up 3 months ago (Apr. 2021) with 1,900 mi.

Great car. Remember seeing it for the first time years ago at the Chicago Auto Show. Now its mine.

Some soft mods so far:
OEM S3/RS3 short shift [8J0-711-046-E] (20% reduction)
ECS Tuning Adjustable Clutch Stop
Lamin-X Fog Light Covers - Front fog light lens cover - yellow tint
OBDEleven - Coded instrument needle sweep and window function with key fob
ECS Tuning - ECS Hatch Pop Kit ES#: 3046195
OBDEleven - hatch pop kit function with key fob

Future:
Chip tune, Bigger brakes, VWR Intake, 034 Dogbone & inserts.

This car will never be tracked as I'm not sure the panoroof will not take the stress. I would like to see around 250hp to the wheels.

2018 VW Alltrack S
I have owned my 2018 Alltrack S 6MT for just over 3 years. Its been a wonderful car. I had several GTIs between 1984 and the mid 90s, then enjoyed two Boxsters, an Audi RS5 (way too heavy but wonderful engine), and then I retired and wanted something sporty but practical. The Alltrack is very sporty, and at 30k mi I had a performance shop here in Denver install Golf R and RVariant derived suspension upgrades which I totally enjoy. It does lower the car an inch or so, so I do not recommend that to everyone. I have about 33k miles now with no unscheduled maintenance encountered. A manual tranny wagon sold in the US...end of an era it seems.

I've a white 2017 Golf Alltrack SE that I bought in August 2020 with 33k on the dash

. I hate the gas mileage (came from a Jetta sportwagon TDI) but love the AWD! I got my husband hooked onto the VW brand now so he went and got a 2021 Jetta R line (very nice BTW). Looking into getting tuned now. Any suggestions?

I'm digging your summer shoes! Do you use the stock rims for winter? I've only got one set of shoes for mine but I'm hoping to one day have a different pair for fancy occasions:)

New to this Forum. Our 2017 Alltrack SE replaced a 2005 Passat wagon (TDI). Stable includes a 2007 Sprinter RV (Roadtrek SS Agile) and a 2006 MB R500.

Normally I'm in no hurry for the snow to come but it is way less stressful now with the AWD.

What tires do you run in winter/summer? I'm still riding on the stock Conti's but I'm wondering if there are better alternatives out there. (I'm sure there are, but it'd be nice to get some real world impressions)

Understandable! Can’t really drift how I want to cuz the AWD is VERY responsive but I do it once (in an abandoned parking lot near home) then have fun around corners. :)

Great question! I use stock Conti’s for winter and 205/55R-17 VREDESTEIN QUATRAC PRO XL on PLATINUM FLUX BLK PAINT rims as summer shoes. I love how both handle in all types of weather but the Vredestein impressively gripped the road in pouring rain.

2017 AllTrack SEL
Hello from Jack in Washington State. Alltrack was the VW I wanted but not available when my 15 year old Audi Avant need replacing but got a 2014 JSW TDI. When VW bought back the TDI, I got what I wanted, new 2017 AllTrack SEL. More room for my German Shepard, better performance, MPG, and great new tech features. A bit less plush but a durable interior.
Our other auto is a Carrera 4. I like all wheels driving, on our wet & snowny roads.
