The Volkswagen GTI is great for long trips or getting around in the city. It is loads of fun to drive and can really carry a lot of cargo when you put the back seat down. The leather interior is very good quality.
The Monsoon sound system is great. The heated seats are very quick to warm up and keep you toasty on those cold winter days.
Though the leather is of good quality, the seats could be a little more comfortable. We also have a 2002 Jetta and those seats are much more comfortable than the GTI's.
