Just Do It. — The Mk V was my favorite GTI in 2012. Bought a 2009 with low mileage and had stage 3 performance package done with a trusted mechanic. At $23k, it has been the greatest driving performance ever and I have been a GTI nut ever since.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: FUN!FUN!FUN!

Cons: A sexy dominatrix with a riding crop that spanks currency from your wallet, Auchtung!

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

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

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

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

Pros: FAST

Cons: Electrics

German Engineering At Its Best — Performance - for what the engine is and its economy the performance is excellent Build Quality - This is as good as it gets for a German car! Appearance - The car looks great in Black, just hard to keep clean Cost of ownership - Excellent gas mileage, maintenance is a little costly but distance from service to service is great (15 000km) Fun Factor - Car is great, makes a nice exhaust note and fun to play around with but then can also be driven well.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: driveability and performance

Cons: The colour in Summer

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.)

Pros: Fun but Practical

Cons: Bad things happen...

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: transmission

Cons: cup holder size
