Best little pocket rocket ever!

This little car has been the 2nd german car that I have owned along with a 93 7series bmw, german cars are definatly the best on the market and have real quality. At 16 years old this car is the right way to go. It is extremely snappy and the smallest speed demon other than a supercharged Mini. Well worth the money and time spent with it and will stick with a GTI for a long time. Living in Idaho a pocket rocket is not the smartest car to have but if you know how to drive reasonably and can control yourself haha.

Surprisingly, have had minor quality issues (i.e. door leaks rainwater, rearwindow washer unit needed replacing twice) but overall it has a quality interior finish, tight handling and the feel of more expensive German engineered cars. While a little slow for a tourbo/sports model in first gear... this car is a rocket on the highway accelerating from 50 to 100+ very quick... and extremely stable at high speeds. Gas mileage is not so great... but that's probably just a personal experience due to my own personal driving habits.

Bought second hand 18 months ago with 34K miles. Have put another 10K on it, virtually trouble free. 1.8T with 5 speed manual. Shifting is crisp, handling very stable. Monsoon sound system as good as it gets as a standard mfg install. Accelerating once you get to 2500 RPM is great, especially when turbo kicks in. Front seats very comfortable and controls logically placed. Back seats really tight, but that is not relevant since I don't carry passengers often. Gas mileage running 31/32 highway, 25 city which is close to advertised (and I only put mid-grade fuel in the tank).

Best Car..!

by from Allentown, PA on April 5, 2010

The GTI is one of the best first cars for young teenagers. This car is very reliable, has great performance, & looks great. Probably my favorite car. ;D
