A Driver, Not A Looker. — Performance - Fast enough to win 1st place STX. (SCCA) Build Quality - Has been more reliable than my Scion tC. Enough said... Appearance - Most people don't like hatches. I love them and I bought the car for me, not them. Deal with it! Cost of Ownership - What can you not like about an engine that can make 280hp and still get 35mpg? Fun Factor - After two years of ownership, she still puts a smile on my face :-) I would recommed this car to someone looking for a sporty ride that doesn't attract attention and does it all in German comfort. A driver, not a looker.

Pros: Engineering, Turbo, Power, Mileage, Safe

Cons: No iPod connector, No factory LSD, A little heavy

My Fast Likes The Windows Down!!!!! — This was my first new car purchase and all that I have to say is I've been extremely pleased with this little performer!!! It has everything you'd want in an automobile, a refined interior with plenty of space for occupants and cargo, a wonderful powertrain to get you moving QUICK, and most of all it's fuel economy puts it in the same league as gas savers!! Volkswagen really hit the mark with this one, what are you waiting for test drive one today and find out for yourself!!!!

Pros: Strong powertrain, refined suspension, well put together interior, and all around fun to drive!!!!  Sheer driving pleasure!!!

Cons: When you arrive at your destination it leaves you wanting more!!!!

Go Fast Juice! — If you want a sporty car with looks and speed, look no further than the new MkV GTI! This thing is avail. with the DSG (Dual Sequential Gearbox) transmission (similar to F1 Racing) and as far as I'm concerned - the only tranny worth getting! 200hp standard, this "pocket rocket" will keep up with and out run some of today's hottest cars! I oughtta know - I drove one!

Pros: 200hp 2.0T, DSG, Votex body kit, 18" Hufeisen (opt.) wheels

Cons: It's not mine!

2.0t Gti Dsg — Best car I've owned, so far. I loved the DSG. Also the engine is absolutely fabulous. Not the fastest car around, but definetly the best all-round fun car for reasonable money. Still sad that I had to sell it.

Pros: DSG, performance/price ratio.

Cons: Fuel consumption

Small Fast Car, With A Quality Interior — I love it. Its super fast for a 2.0 cylinder. The interior is top notch. Audi quality and materials. Its a solid car, the doors close with a nice thud. Not a tin can sound.

Pros: Lots of upscale features that come standard that no other small car has

Cons: None at all

Drivers Car. Slightly Under-powered Than The Apposition But Still Knows How To Hold It's Own. — Beautifully finished, high quality materials used which explains the extra moola one has to pay to get this in your stable. Great sounding engine, brilliant engine.

Pros: Point and Shoot drivability. Lots of fun to drive.

Cons: Mines a manual box, should have gone for the DSG.
