Wont Be The Last Vw Or Gti I Will Buy In My Life Time — My first new car has good acceleration since it has a turbo. Has a good warranty I dont have to pay for any maintenance for the first 3 years at all. It is a blast to drive it is the worlds first Hot Hatch.

Great Car Overall... Beats All In Its Price-range... — In regards to price, quality, driving enjoyment, and practicality I compared the GTI with a 350z, C30, Cooper S, Altima Coupe, Accord Coupe, and tC. All in all, the GTI wins. The 350 is fast and fun but not practical for commuting; a great toy. The C30 was too expensive for a car of the same quality of the GTI. The Cooper S is the most over-designed and disgusting interior I have ever seen. The Altima and the Accord were overpriced and bad on gas. And the tC was low-quality... The GTI won on almost all of these points and if it didnt win it was a close second...

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

I Wish I Would Have Discovered This Car Years Ago. — The perfect pinnacle of price, performance, and practicality. I also own a 2006 Pontiac GTO with a supercharged (aftermarket) 6.0L V-8 pumping out 540 hp and 520 lb-ft, and this little GTI is as much fun to drive as my muscle car, and maybe even more so with respect to all around handling. When I have to decide which car to drive, it's always a tough choice, but I'm never surpised when the GTI wins out (and usually more often).

Hot Hatchback — Acceleration and brakes are quite perfect, if you once drive it on sport mode you will never drive it normally you need to spend on it if you drive it violently it looks nice with german best interior quality its cost is affordable compared to other german cars, it dose not consume too much gas. fun to drive

FAST

Cons

Electrics

My Fast Gti — Very stable and the perfect hot hatch. Very well rounded. Fast and comfortable at the same time. Excellent traction did even need snow tires in the winter and I live in Michigan. Only bad thing would be the electronics. VW is not known for having quality electric systems in their cars

Frickin Sweet — I love the size and accelaration and transmission. Handling around the turns is very managable and terrific. Its grey with red trim, and looks extremely attractive. It is very fun to drive and faster out of the hole than many other cars have come across.
