Practical Hot Hatch — Plenty of cargo space. Nice interior. Very sporty. The only weak spot is that it is front wheel drive only. All wheel drive really should be an option. There also should be higher horsepower options. The car really comes alive with a bigger turbo.

My Great Little Car — Its a very cool car for young people. It has an exhaust that sound amazing(never boring). It very fast in the corners the car sticks to the road picks up very qucik and for a four door it small which gives a nice *where to park in there* feeling.

Pros

Great summer car, fun to drive, throttle response is good although a little Turbo Lag. NO Maintenance aside from Brakes and Tires, oil changes. Bucket seats in the front hold you tight, and plaid print comes standard on the seats.

Cons

Little cargo space, limited room in back seat, yet more room than most 2 doors. Large Blind spots due to wide door runner.

Great Commuter Car With A Little Head Turning Added. — Love this car! No car is perfect, but this one came close. It is great to own a car associated with such a reliable and dedicated brand. VW has made a great vehicle here, one that is fun to drive, doesn't break the bank, and is highly customization.

Pocket Rocket — A true pocket rocket, this car is so much fun to drive and I love listening to the engines "purr". This car zips easily around turns and accelerates...FAST! I only wish I could trust someone other than the VW dealer to service this car.

Pros

This is the 1st 6 speed manual I've ever driven and their is power to spare

Cons

Road noise, and cargo rattle started after the 2nd year of ownership. Road noise from the tires is attributed to the low profile tires

Would Love To Take It On The Track — I understand that there is an after market chip that you can purchase to add speed and other neat go-fast options to the GTI. I would love to have those mods done and take it on a track for a few laps to see how well this care can handle under extreme handling conditions.

Pros

Great value & daily driver. Solid German hatchback

Cons

Premium gas helps, little extra cost but better MPG as a result.

Great Value & Daily Driver. Solid German Hatchback — Great daily driver! Great handling, slight turbo lag but consistent torque & power. Have wanted one for years & it finally happened! Highway mpg up to 34mpg, life mpg at 27. Had a 08 rabbit before this GTI and it's just as solid, just redefined & sporty! Love it

Best Car Ive Owned, Other Than My Vw Rabbit Project — its a VW not the best performance, but way better interior than any honda and most other cars, chip this biotch and it easily takes on most other boy racerish cars. definitely the best all around car you can buy. just go read car and drivers article comparing the VW GTI with 9 other cars in the same price range.

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