2009 Vw Gti 2.0 Turbo - Autobahn Edition — Autobahn Package includes a higher top speed limiter, 18 wheels with summer semi-slick tires, performance bucket seats, and VW premium navigation with 30g hard drive. It is a great cruiser and also a lot of fun around the bends. LOVE IT

Freaking Awesome! — Great performance, excellent torque in the low RPM range. Good bang for your buck performance. Good fuel efficiency. The DSG (Direct Shift Gearbox) transmission is AMAZING!!!!!...best tranny in a car under $100,000. I swear by it. If you buy this car you have to get the DSG!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun as hell to drive, especially with the DSG transmission.

Cons: It doesn't come with Homelink.

Awesome — awesome......The GTI is a great all-around sporty car. Good power, no turbo lag, good handling, nice interior with lots of room, good fuel economy, and it feels & drives like a more expensive vehicle. It may not have the outright power of a WRX, but the refinement and fun are a great combination for me. It handles great, is quiet going down the road. It inspires confidence on back roads, and never feels like you are asking it to do something it doesn't want to.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: accelaration and handling

Good Summer Car, Not The Best Winter Whip But Great Daily Driver...mpg & Performance — get new tires off the bat for starters. With a chip, it will be as fast as an S4. The inside is pretty good quality, there is a ton of features on this car and for a decent price. Mine averages 32 mpg all around, if i drive nicely or 27 mpg if i beat the piss out of it. No cost maintenance warrant is pretty cool. I love to drive it hard into a corner, and then accelerate hard out. It really is a little rocketship.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The Complete Package

Cons: SUCKS IN THE WINTER!

Golf Gti — This is probably the best hatchback I've ever driven! The speed and the handling is awesome! I don't even have to worry about the built quality, it's stable. The maintenance is average and easy to find the accessories for the car. It's very fun to drive!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Speed

Rocket On Wheels Baby..... — I've had it one and a half days now. I haven't even played with all the cool features yet!!! So far.... LOVING IT. VW thought of absolutely everything. I couldn't have equipped it better myself. Fast like a friggin' rocket on wheels!!!!

Pros: so far everything

Cons: Well, black is hard to keep clean but doesn't exactly suck!
