I have owned my VW GTI for about two months now, and I love driving it more and more each day. It has a lot of power and the optional manual transmission is fun, while still having the ease of an automatic. I recently took it on a short road trip and it was so smooth the whole way. The hatchback makes it spacious enough to put a bike in the back without taking any wheels off. This is my first VW and I absolutely love it, perfect size, perfect look, and fast when I want it to be!
Plenty of power and the engine sounds great. The 6 speed manual transmission has a very smooth feel to the shifter with short, effortless throws. The brakes are very powerful as well. The interior is great looking and very solid feeling. I really like the plaid pattern on the seats, which are very comfortable, if a little firm. I also like the small red lights on the ceiling that shine down on the shifter at night. It is a good looking car, but I do prefer the look of the mk6 models. I'm also not too crazy about the look of the 5 spoke 17 inch wheels, don't know why, I just think they don't really fit the look of the car sometimes. The h.i.d. headlights are awesome, don't think I could ever go back to conventional halogen bulbs. Only problem I've had so far in a year of having it is a sensor on the driver side door, the car locks itself again even when the driver door is open, like it can't detect that it's open. That's no big deal, though. The multi function information display is pretty cool, though I don't find myself using a whole lot. Be aware, as it does require premium fuel and fully synthetic motor oil, but I would definitely recommend this car to anyone who wants something small and sporty.
