Pros

Incredibly fun to drive; over 200lbs of torque combined with german engineering makes
this a phenomenal car.

Cons

Turbo creates for a somewhat loud drive; rough suspension can get annoying from time to
time

Quick And Nimble With Awesome Torque And Reliable German Build. — This car is a joy to drive for any real driving enthusiast. Its a hot hatch at its soul, and delivers in almost all facets. Handling and suspension is hard making it feel like you are apart of the road. With its brand new 2.0t, this car does not lack in pick-up. There is very minmal turbo lag making this car seem much faster than it really is. I highly recomend this car if you are looking for a fun car to drive that gives you a feeling that your in a 30k sports car.

Best Car I Have Ever Owned Period! — I WILL NEVER LIVE DOWN THE DAY I TRADED THIS GLORIOUS CAR!! Performance- Great numbers. Excellent Handling Build Quality- They thought about everything when they made this car. Auto down AND Auto up on all the windows. HID. Sirius Radio. Contoured wipers. Unique plaid design on seats. The glove box was also a fridge. Place for your sunglasses. Lots of cargo space. 6 CD changer. Highly modifiable. Cons would be if the wipers would fail if they were overloaded with snow and you would have to go to the dealership to fix them if you didn't know how. Also the seals in the turbo will blow after an ECU retune and will require a new turbo. Maintenance- CHEAP! Volkswagen will do all the scheduled maintenance up to 36,000 miles. Also they will fix most anything no questions asked while on warrenty. One time I came in and they completely replaced my key without me even asking just because they noticed the battery in the key was getting weak and that the key ring broke. Also volkswagen makes you feel like a KING! they send you calendars with you and your car in them, a free gti fast action figure, holiday cards, their own financing, and a dvd on your gti showing you the ins and outs along with comedic parodies. I miss VW. Fun Factor- The funnest car I have ever owned and I have owned sti's and evo's.

Peepy Well Made Car With A Sence Of Luxury As Well As Sportiness. — with a 2.0L turbo charged engine that produces 200 bhp and 207 ft lbs of torque, it roars around the streets with style. Heated leather seats, dsg triptonic gearbox, 18 inch wheels, and room as well as in the boot give it a sense of practicality. It has a beautiful sporty styling that catches everyones eye as well as the magma orange. #732/1200 made

Buy A Gti Mkv — the handling is AMAZING. the dsg automatic gear box makes shifting smooth and unoticeable swappin gears at .06 seconds. the acceleation....ive felt better. it does have a 2.0 turbocharged engine, but it doesnt get up very fast, but when it does, its quick. you kind of get used to that though. brakes are great, 4 cherry red brake calipers on each wheel that get the job done and look great doing it. the only problem we had with the car itself is the belt squeaking when it's cold. we've had it repaired twice, and it doesnt do it anymore. also the fabric in back snagged before we even put anything back there. i think its a great looking car, its definity something you gave to get used to tho. i love the interior styling-plaid seats, italian leather steering wheel, sirius radio. ours is light silver - i prefer the charcoal silver. my dad picked it out tho - it is his car. its very cheap to maintain. it gets atleast 32 MPG. its a BLAST to drive - quick, great handling, and ergos. you know you want one!!!

Pros

Awesome handling and lotsa torque yet comfortable if you wish to cruise along the highways...

Cons

Having not enough compartments for storage - Its a hatchback.

My Red Hot Wheels — Performance - good acceleration whenever i need it...a lot of power is available at my disposal. Braking is just as good. Handling is one of the best feature of this car. Build quality is not as i expected due to the roof lining problem at the sunglasses holder and the gearbox panel's black coating is too easily come off if scratched. It is a very fun car to drive.

Overall A Well Built Fun And Fast Car. — Performance now is very good, The best I have run with Bolt-ons and Revo STG2+ Tune is a 13.1@108 MPH I have coilovers waiting for Install but factory handling is above average for a sporty front wheel drive car. The build quality is Excellent Ive had 0 issues with any manufacturing defects or odd ball noises. Appearance is based on personal preference but I love the way this car looks especially after the FMIC, The cost of ownership is relatively cheap especial performing my own maintenance fuel mileage averages around 30 MPG combined Driving. And this car is a blast to drive, unlike many FWD vehicles this car will rotate if it is desired and is a blast to pull on v8 cars or many other forced induction cars on the highway.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Great handling and power.  Sporty little hatch with cargo space to haul.  
Interior is spacious and build quality is beyond other cars within it's class.  

Cons

Maintenance cost for any German car seems to be a little above average - But well worth it!

Sporty; Fun; Practical — THis car was by far my favorite car that i have ever owned. It's hatch provides ample space for all your daily needs. THe fuel efficiency is very good as well. More importantly, it's the most fun when driving around a twisty back road. The handling is excellent and the power feels strong for a little hatchback.
