I am rethinking my needs for my next electric car. I don't like the idea of feeling tethered every 100 to 115 miles on the freeway, when 200 or more is possible in a 3. Plus... the 3 has surveillance camera's on it. I really wish my e-Golf had that feature.

If I ordered a 3, I'm not in a rush for delivery. Hell, if I could save the delivery fee, I'd just fly in and pick it up in Fremont, CA, or where ever. That would be a fun drive back home.


I like the way I'm doing this now...eGolf for 90% of my needs, Alltrack for the rest. Isn't that why you have not one, but TWO TDI's? For long distances? Last year I only had to DCFC maybe a handful of times. When I go long distance, I go LONG distance...as in 400+ miles. But those are rare...the Alltrack is 2-1/2 years old and has only 16k miles even though it's been on a few road trips to Tahoe, Vegas, Arizona, and even the Canadian Rockies.

From what I've read on other forums, the 3 has quite a bit of build quality issues. Makes VW look like a Toyota in reliability. And their finances still seem a bit shaky.

Only reason I have the Touareg is to tow my Travel Trailer. Took the passat on a 430 mile round trip earlier this week. 49.5 MPG doing 65 up 395 to the Owens Valley and back. I must say, the passat SEL is much, much more comfortable than the e-Golf SEL. Both are 2015's, however the Passat is due for a DSG transmission gearbox service, oil and filter. About $450, with reset of clutch pack engagement points and about $160 in material and 2 hours of labor @ 135 .

We are trying to decide what to do when our 2016 e-golf lease is up at the end of May (we already extended 6 months). We stopped by a dealer and they had a "few cars" with the loss leader 24 month lease - it is a reasonably good deal. As we started to leave, the salesman said "if you want to get one, you better decide now since VW won't ship any more e-golfs to dealers ever".

Does anyone know if this is true or just BS to push the sale?


We now know the answer: Just BS to push the sale, since Sunnyvale and Serramonte have resupplied their inventory of SE models, although color choice seems more limited now.

Search jus' a little further inland. York (Pennsylvania) VW has one:

I got my silver-white from the same dealership for $24k. The GFG is the same price online as my silver-white was.

That particular VIN is only different from mine by about 400. Likely "Geboren" the same day as mine 9/20/18. We toured Wolfsburg in 2016, they rolled out about 3,200 Golf's per day. And the factory is tooled to assemble EV, Benzine oder Diesel, regardless of the order. They can switch on the fly.

I think the early 2019's had Great Falls Green and White Silver available. They also have the same front bumper cover as the 2015-2018 models. I don't think those colors are available anymore, and my 2019 Pure White SE (build date of January 2019) has black strakes like a Golf GTI with the C-shaped LED running lights. Does yours have the black strakes? See this photo for reference:
