GTI 2.0 6M MKV FSI Review

2006 Volkswagen GTI Rasta - Los Angeles, CA 08/14/2012

The transmission is the biggest change from the rabbit/golf/jetta to the turbo and lighter body version. The listed 0-60 time is 5.9sec bone stock and I can vouch for it :p Like all of the volkswagen coupes, the gti has lots of room under the hood for mods, and many mod options available pretty much everywhere. If you like sport-tuned suspension that allows you to grip turns and also feel every crack in the road, buy this car! The throttle response could be a little better but this is also due to the turbo lag. Both of these issues can be easily fixed with a few performance parts (since the only people who would care, want to make it faster anyway). This is definitely my favorite car so far and it just never really gets old. As soon as you turn it on, you can hear the turbo hum. It's got decent mileage in the city and even better on the highway (20city/30-35hwy) Depending on how you drive. I am averaging 23mpg driving about half city half highway because first gear eats gas even if you shift early. Hope this review was helpful. If I think of anything else I will throw it on the website. cheers!

not so great

2006 Volkswagen GTI Billy - washington dc 08/12/2009

if your looking for a quick (not fast) car, with good handling, spacious interior (for a little car), and great gas mileage this might be the one for you
