2005 Volkswagen GTI 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Review
First of all, you can't beat the price of this car for the fun that you get. I was between this car and the Acura RSX S, but purchasing this car for 4K-5K less turned out to be a great decision. I love the 17" 15-spoke wheels, and the posh interior is identical to the Audi A4. The acceleration, engine noise, and handling make you want to be the friend who drives everybody around. This car has proven to be both functional and fun, as the back seat turns into a surprisingly large cargo area that beats any sedan as far as usefulness goes. Discrete looks with a fantastic pick-up at an unbeatable price makes this guy a proud GTI owner.
Favorite Features
The turbo, the foldable back seats that come down perfectly flat to create a large cargo area, 17" rims, stereo system, leather interior, cruise control.
Suggested Improvements
Independent rear suspension to control fish tailing when accelerating into a turn from a stopped position. Listed gas economy slightly low based on how much GTI owners accelerate (still gets 22-23 mpg in city). Seats that move vertically would be nice. AC decent, but takes some time to get cool.
