    Transmission: Automatic Color: Gray Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.385 (13 reviews) "It's incredibly fun to drive, with just enough performance to have fun without having to drive at crazy stupid speeds, and get speeding tickets. Steering is the best out there, still hydraulic, making it feel more natural than modern electric power steering. DSG is a gem with almost instantaneous shifts, and makes me feel like a formula one driver. XDR electronic front dif makes torque steer a thing of the past, and handling and ride balance is outstanding. The Autobahn is easily as luxurious in most respects as far more expensive German sedans. Storage space is huge - especially with seats down. Negatives - nav has no traffic, and tiny screen, lack of rear view camera, and other modern safety doo dads."

    Transmission: Manual 6 Speed Color: Black Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.385 (13 reviews) "My father warned me about VW. I should have listened. I bought a 2012 GTI new in August of 2012. Initially the car was pretty good I have to admit. The performance was good, it was comfortable, and the utility of the thing was better than any small car I can imagine. Things started to head South around 30k miles. First came the intake manifold. Carbon deposits on the intake valves and within the air manifold are issues with this engine. Even running the prescribed gasoline and changing the oil on time everytime, the manifold was replaced at around 32k under warranty, but as with most service I had to miss some work. Then came the battery. Completely dead at 40k miles. Had to tow the car and pay $160 for a new battery. Then came the thermostat at 45k. The thermostat failed in the closed position causing the car to rapidly overheat while I was 300 miles from my home with my wife, my son, and our dog in tow. I had to fight with VW to get it fixed under warranty and when I came to pick up the car (300 miles from home) somehow it was not done when they said it was going to be done so now I get to miss two days of work and have to find a place to stay away from home. Three pretty significant failures before 50k miles. If VW wants to be the biggest car company in the world (which currently is their stated goal) they should learn to make cars first. Don't by this car."

Best car I've owned.
