Comfortable seating and room in the back seats for passengers. Smooth ride along with smooth clutch. Good gas mileage well priced. Fast little 4 cylinder. Been a fan of volkswagen have owned three so far mechanically sound and haven't had any bad electrical issues with any vw I've owned. Highly recommend for the sports car finatic.
Great price Great car great performance GREAT VALUE
2011 Volkswagen GTIGene - 45014, OH02/25/2015
The German engineering has provided a rock solid car. Great ride, solid performance, well laid out interior with functionality in mind. Creature comforts that are quite good, especially for a small car. The performance is very surprising for a 2.0 liter engine and I still get well over 30 mpg highway! I purchased the car with nearly 80K miles on it, and it had not been well cared for by the previous owner. With just a little TLC, provided mostly by carmax, it rides and performs as well as one with many mile less. A testament to how well this car is built.
A practical sports car
2009 Volkswagen GTILia - Nashville, TN01/17/2015
This car is just amazing. Four door hatchback practicality with sports car driving experience. Every other weekend i do a 325 mile round trip drive to visit my daughter, mostly on curvy back roads through beautiful land. It was time for a new car, and I wanted something that would make the drive fun, while still being a good all around vehicle. I had always been curious about the GTI, so I set out to test drive one. My local Carmax had a gorgeous red one in stock with decently low mileage. I drove it and loved it. I drove a few other cars, including a turbo Mini Cooper that I loved, but settled on the VW. I've put several thousand miles on her and am still in love. Highly recommend the DSG transmission and paddle shifters!
