2005 Volkswagen GTI 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5A)

Review

Being a lifelong Manhattanite, getting a car is really a luxury. I was really close to buying a MINI Cooper S, but after much research I went with the Volkswagen GTI. I'm a musician, so I needed a little extra room for cargo. With the GTI comapred to the Cooper I get better top-speed, equal acceleration, better performance, almost-as-good MPG, and 25 cubic feet more cargo space, for thousands less! I can't say enough about how much fun it is to drive. The '05's don't have the slick style that the '06's will, but I like this boxy little guy. It looks so unassuming and frumpy. But then you step on the gas, and it says, "See ya!" Fun, fun, fun.

Best Features

The performance, Monsoon sound system, and heated seats.

Worst Features

Only what I plan to do myself. I'll be putting in a plug-and-play navigation system and a SIRIUS sattelite radio.
