Overall fantastic car
April 14, 2019
Traded in a 2017 GLI that I loved (with an APR tune) for the 35th Anniversary model. While I'm still under 600 miles (and, therefore, taking it easy) the new GLI is already making my choice a wise one. It does lack certain amenities (cooled glove box, sunroof, sunglasses holder, CD player, Navigation, etc.) but the overall improvement outweighs all of these. The ride is unbelievable for a relatively small (compact) vehicle and I've already received compliments from total strangers (pure gray paint). It is very interesting to notice what VW has done to make this a great car at an attractive price. They give you what you need in a sport sedan and nothing more or gimmicky. Yes, they have cut costs in a few areas, but nothing that really means a great deal to the overall satisfaction of the car. What you get is a spirited sedan that is simply fun to drive...….. a wonderful driver's car.
