A Great, Affordable Car That Yields The Most Grins Per Dollar. — awesome. Refined, not brutish like the WRX or Mazdaspeed 3. Feels like an Audi. The mini feels like a toy compared to this car. DSG with paddle shifters gets nice revs. Tight chassis, handles like a dream. Seamlessly shifts from daily commute car to fun to drive hot hatch. More mature than the competition. Interior is almost luxury level in terms of quality of plastics and chrome. Get one.

I absolutely love my GTI, lots of power and handles exceptionally well. I thoroughly enjoy driving my GTI.

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.

Best Value For Money In Class!! — Performance not the best in class but still VERY good considdering that some of the competition is 2.5 and 2.3 litre engines. Build quality is excellent as you can expect from all VW's! Appearance is very sporty yet stylish and classy! Cost of ownership is ok... it is a bit thristy but still best in class. It is the most fun car i have owned and one of the best i have driven...

Fast, Responsive, Crazy.

Cons

Brakes are a bit problematic

35

Fun To Drive — Accelerates quickly, really does do 0-100km/h in 6 seconds. Handle very well around smooth corners but can be jumpy. The braking is not so good at high speeds. it looks beautiful both inside and outside. if you put pedal to the medal it will eat up a lot of gas. Overall the car is very fun to drive, its responsive, very fast and sends shivers down your spine.

Best Gti So Far — The best GTI so far. Strong engine, wicked bottom end, not bad top end. Interior quality is that of BMW/Audi, a long list of base options inc handsfree bluetooth. If you own this car, you MUST go stage 1 ASAP..
