2008 Volkswagen GLI 4dr Sedan w/Prod. End 04/08 (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


The 2008 GLI after one month of service has been expectedly reliable and pleasant. So far my GLI does not burn oil, is not loud at start-up and does not shake/shimmy exhibit any other cause of concern that other VW owners have complained about. I drove my VW very gently for the break in period (yes, less than a month and i'm well over 1k miles) and followed all directions in the owners manual. I rarely punched it and everything is as expected. The interior does show lint little scuffs, but these are easy clean ups considering how beautiful the interior is. It averages 24mpg overall , and supposed to get better with age. No problems, and utter Farfeghnughen.

Best Features

Moonroof, 18" Huffeisen rims (totally worth it), 6-disc CD changer, extendo reach center console, turbo oomph.

Worst Features

Cooling fan sounds like a plane is about to take off when it comes on (which is frequently), 24 mpg, no bluetooth connectivity, mushy alphabet brakes.
