2013 Volkswagen GTINina Ward - New Bern, NC04/24/2016
It drives like a sports car, low to the ground, holds corners like it's on rails, doesn't sway when the big trucks pass at 70+ mph. It gets an honest 32 mpg. The heating and cooling system is excellent. In dash GPS and steady cruise control make traveling a breeze. It has excellent pick up for getting up to speed on the interstates and a smooth transmission. Mine has a moon roof which is nice in the rain but not in the North Carolina summer sun.
-Simple, attractive, intuitive cabin
-Great manual gearbox
-Sharp, responsive steering
-2.0L Turbo has a nice sound, good torque
-suspension gives feedback, sometimes too much on city roads
-front seats lack adjustability, rear seats don't fold quite flat
The perfect car for an enthusiast who needs space
2015 Volkswagen GTIMatt Geiszler - San Diego, CA12/14/2015
This car does everything well and is a ton of fun to drive.I've had it for four months and I still get a huge grin on my face when I drive it. You can easily gobble up miles in comfort on the freeway with it's super supportive seats and great infotainment system, or you can kick in sport mode and carve up a twisty road. I smoked several BMW's and a Cooper S on some back roads right after I got this and the car didn't even break a sweat. The Fender sound system is excellent and the integrations with your phone mean you never have to take your eyes off the road. My only complaint is the low-profile tires. This is the first car I've had with them, and it's super easy to curb your rims if you're not really careful. But well worth it.
