Love the little thing
Cons: Mileage not great, about 22 around town.We needed a little runabout to keep miles off our VW camper. This is great for that. Limited trunk and rear seat space but great for two and I love the look.
Pros: Performance and handling
Cons: Tyre wearAfter a few family cars I decided to get a hot hatch and bought a Golf GTI. Since I have this car you will find a broad smile on my face. Price, performance and quality are simply awesome I can only recommend this car.
Cons: lazy handlingI am 2nd owner, 1st owner did a decent job of maint, had all recalls performed at dealer. Previous GTI/GLI's were much better in handling, new car is much better on the highway. Turbo power is exciting!
Over exceeded expectations...
Pros: Acceleration and exhuast note
Cons: NothingI've been very impressed with my 2010 VW GTI. The interior quality is outstanding, the car has great acceleration, and I get lots of compliments on the exterior looks. The best part is the exhaust note when you rev the engine up in the 3-5k range. Overall the car has greatly exceeded my expectations, especially given the $24k price.
Small car, big performance
Pros: MPG & MPH
Cons: An oil change is $130.00 (full synthetic and VW filter, etc.My R32 VW gets 22 MPG in city driving and 155 MPH on the highway. What a great combination.
Golf TDI Amazing!!!
Pros: Turbo Diesel
Cons: had to wait for it to come inMy 2010 Golf TDI is amazing! Go-kart handling, plenty of pep, great seats and the mpg is out of this world. The interior is quite roomy for a compact car and the list of standard features is impressive.
