2017 Golf Sportwagen 4motion vs. used Audi allroad
Trying to decide between a used (2013, 40-50k miles) allroad and a new Golf Sportwagen 4motion (AWD). They're similar prices (within a $3000), so I'm mainly concerned about reliability and cost to own over the next 5-8 years , and I'm unsure how to weigh new vs. used. Used for a short daily commute and 2 trips/month into the mountains in the New England winters that include some nasty unpaved hills. I found the audi more comfortable and more fun to drive, and they seem to have good reliability ratings, but am not sure if that outweighs getting a used vehicle vs. a new one. Also if there are any mountain bikers out there the relative ease of throwing two 29ers in the back without needing a rack is important. Thanks!
