The car is really fast
This is the best car to cruise around town in. Drives great with plenty of power. Everything in the engine is easy to replace except the turbo.
Awesome All-Rounder; Just Keep Up With Maintenance
Had a 2008 GTI and this car is everything the moto-press says it is. Very peppy, surprisingly good highway cruiser, much roomier on the inside than the outside would lead you to believe. Straightforward controls. Handles like a sportcar, which also means slightly rough. Great fuel economy. The GTI as are most European cars is very sensitive to maintenance so do NOT slack on it and it will put a huge smile on your face regularly.
Bad used car experience
Nice car . Has issues . Need to be fixed . No one will call to address the issue. Made it clear to fix the issue before signing the deal . The car came back with the same issue.
