2005 Volkswagen GTI VR6 2dr Hatchback (2.8L 6cyl 6M)
Review
The VW GTI is an automotive LEGEND worldwide! It's been around, in one form or another, for over 25 years, and has been the sports-hatch bargain of choice for countless drivers seeking affordable performance and style the world over. The 24 valve VR6 is no exception. What an awesome engine! It can be argued that this is one of the BEST GTI's EVER, given the superb quality and engineering evident inside and out. The interior is absolutely impeccable, with fit and finish worthy of an Audi or BMW. The exterior design and overall looks convey German class and performance, especially with the gorgeous 17 inch 'Monte Carlo' rims, which enable the car to perform admirably. A very TIGHT car!
Favorite Features
Where do I start? Everything about this car is just awesome. Reliability has been flawless. No problems whatsoever. Best of all, the 24V motor coupled to the 6-speed manual, grabs you from the getgo! Torque is amazing, with strong acceleration and awesome stability for a FWD car. The car is a blast!
Suggested Improvements
The only 'improvement' this GTI could benefit from is a bit of weight reduction. As it stands, 0-60 can be had in a brisk 6.5 seconds, and you really feel the engine's power on the highway when passing. I can't imagine what this car would be like with a bit less weight! Nonetheless, it's still fast!
