Volvo love must be strong if you swapped a Golf R back to two 850s.

The 850, especially the wagon, is one of my favorite cars but damn, I've driven both MK6 and MK7 Rs and they are on the next level...

Both were MK7s - e-golf and the golf-r were both lemons plagued with issues....

I Get that the E-Golf 'could' have issues but what was up with the MK7 Golf R? What year? What issues? That sucks!

C30: ABS Module issues. Locked up front Right brake on every freeway offramp due to the wheel sensor believing it was spinning at 0mph. Apparently Volvo said this "pulsation" was a 2013 model year only issue.

e-Golf: AC charging cable shorted twice. This left me stranded 3-4 times. 

Golf R: Bad headgasket, car would consume a full expansion tank worth of coolant every 500 miles. After VW refused to fix it without me blowing up the block, i voluntarily turned it in and sold it back to the dealer.

Wow - haven't read about or heard of that Golf R issue on any of the forums... that certainly sucks. Was this an isolated incident according to your findings? Was this a certain model year?

I still kick myself for not getting the MK7 Golf R and instead getting the MK7 GTI :(

Kevin you should delete the facebook page

It was heavily discussed with the mods but we decided it would be good to let the idiots ruin FB while the core guys have the forum. Fair compromise I guess?
