2009 Volkswagen GLI Sedan 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


My original intent was to purchase an Acura TSX. However, after driving a friends VW Jetta, I reconsidered. After some research, I found the VW offered virtually the same features for almost the same price points. I picked up the VW GLI option (sports package) with the 6 speed manual and Bluetooth. This car is far more fun to drive than my Lexus ES300, in fact, it is the closest thing to my Honda VFR750 motorcycle for fun and performance!

Best Features

The 2.0 l 4 cylinder turbo coupled with the manual transmission and Bluetooth.

Worst Features

Bluetooth feedback volume control is louder than the verbal volume of the actual phone call. Bluetooth audio quality is good for conversation but certain frequencies creates audible buzz in the trim. Speedometer isn't linear respective to gearing (4th gear is more accurate reading than 6th).
