Overall:

The 2013 Golf GTI is an exceptional car. With it being 8 yrs old now and still drives like it’s new is a testament to VW’s build quality ! I would compare it to the Honda Civic Si, Ford Focus ST and the Subaru Sti and I would pick the GTI over all of them! The GTI is the original hot hatch!! This car is missing nothing in my opinion .

Perfect Jack Of All Trades — This is a beautiful package of a vehicle. Funto drive, stylish, comfortable, efficient, and well built, the GTI consistently surprises. It can handle the turns with ease while comfortably seating 4 full grown adults, and still kick you in the pants with its pep. Don't be quick to judge. It will impress you.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Sporty, fun, stylish, efficient, classy, luxurious

Cons: Somewhat costly, a little small.

Great Car! Love Her — Great acceleration, handling, and braking. I have super sporty tires on her so the only negative of the car is when there is snow not much traction. super fun to drive! for the money you get a lot. Interior is by far the nicest of all the cars i was looking at. great gas milage as well even when youre having fun

Pros: everything

Cons: snow driving

Fabulous — The ability to upgrade to APR and not lose the warranty is great! I really enjoy riding this car with the DSG. It lets me go to higher revs. The acceleration on this thing is just great! I love this Car!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The DSG is awesome, and the rumble of the engine is enough!

Cons: Nothing!

Love My Gti! — I love the stylish look. Just the right size. Fast pick up response. Stereo sounds great. I get 300 miles on a full tank. This is the first car which my dog actually enjoys riding in the back seat. Steering wheel is comfortable, very cool looking and has many controls right at your fingertips including voice automated contact lookup with Bluetooth to my phone which plays my music from also. Sweet!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handles corners like a pro.  Love the rear wiper, led lights, heated seats and mirrors. The sturdy feel of this car makes me feel safe.

Cons: The only thing I wish the car had was a backup camera; other than that, this car is awesome.  Safety feature makes it tricky to drive with two feet (I sometimes press the brake and gas at the same time which causes it to hesitate). Wish there was a USB port for my iPhone; but there is a hookup for an iPod.
