Have had since new, fun to drive, handles great around corners good power at high rpms and good gas mileage. Sixth VW owned this is the best car so far. The GTi has had some things break but nothing major. Will be on my third set of tires. Still has the new car appeal after 7 yrs and has an excellent resale value. Some of things that need improvement are the cup holders location and peeling from the audio unit. Seats are still firm but fading. Over all the car is great and would recommend this vehicle. Will pass this vehicle to my son and purchase a new model.
Exterior, 18" BBS Wheels, Recaro Seats, Moonsoon Sound System, Cargo room, key feature to roll down and up windows, performance.
Location of cupholders and nothing that would peel from side panels and around audio.
