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


I had owned a 2003 GLI which hurt to trade in for a larger vehicle (family). I was in the market for a second vehicle and knew I had to check out the 09 GLI. I drove it once and that was it. Right away you feel the German engineering in the solid build it has. The acceleration of the 4 cylinder turbo is awesome. The gas mileage is great, got up to 33 mpg at one time! I have the autobahn package. The GLI stitching is cool and the leather bucket seats keep you in place. The 6 speed manual makes it that much more fun to drive. For the price you get a car comparable to a BMW 3 series.

Best Features

Deep Black Metallic color (hard to keep clean though), steering wheel, leather seats, manual transmission, bi-xenon headlamps, 18 in wheels.

Worst Features

Bluetooth, other than that it's the perfect car!!
