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 best all around car I've ever driven - BUY IT!
2013 Volkswagen GTI Wolfsburg Edition w/ DSG
Simply put, the GTI is a great blend of fun, maturity, practicality, and value. It has yet to disappoint in my 2 years of ownership and has proven to be equally pleasant on the highway (comfortable ride, stable feel, great mileage) and winding back roads (great handling, natural steering feel from an electric rack no less, good power). The hatchback and folding seats add great versatility, and it looks appropriately aggressive without shouting for attention (but plaid seats do get compliments).
I only have three minor complaints about the car...
- Manual headlights in lower trims
- Trip mpg in the heads up display mildly overstates fuel economy
- Manual upshifts are slightly delayed
