Best GTI Ever
Cons: Air ConditioningThis car is a blast to drive. Even after 4 years of ownership, I feel as enthusiastic about this car as when I first bought it. It's a well-balanced, practical sports car.

The Original Hot Hatch Rocks
Pros: Engine performance
Cons: Exterior Styling, Front wheel driveIn all honesty, you'd be hard pressed to find a better, all around sporty economy car. The interior is top-notch, and the drive is simply stunning. For a front wheel drive car, it handles incredibly flat, and the steering is very precise. The 2.0T is an absolute gem, with oodles of torque down low, making merging and passing people on the highway a breeze. I even use mine to participate in autocross events, and I've surprised many BMW and Porsche owners with how fast my little car car run. If you're looking for a sporty car that get great fuel economy while maintaining enough space to be practical, this is the car for you.
Great Car for an Awesome Price
Pros: DSG Automatic transmission
Cons: Sunglasses compartment doesn't fit My SunglassesI spend 3 years researching cars and looking for Best Deal, I am 6'8'' 225 lbs so finding a roomy car, that is fast, looks great, isn't too expensive, has great acceleration, give great gas millage and is well designed inside out was not an easy task. My GTI has all that an more, Seat warmers, heated mirrors come standard. Car is small enough in length to fit in any space but spacious enough inside to fit me more comfortably than 95% of cars on the market (yes I tried all the cars at an Auto show in LA to make sure I can fit).
