2006 Volkswagen GTI Hatchback 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

I drive my 2006 GTI on the weekends through the mountains and can really take the turns. The pickup is awesome too.


Best Features

turbo, turbo, turbo!!!


Worst Features

The cup holder is in a bad spot. The car with the best cupholders ever is the 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX. VW needs to adopt that style.

2006 Volkswagen GTI Hatchback 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

This is my second Volkswagen GTI and I must say they get a bad rap on the speed and handling sides. With a straight (no cat) exhaust system and a set of TEIN coils I'm able to hustle Nissan 350Zs and stock Honda S2000s to the point of spin in the moutians. All while being able to clock repeatable 14.4s @ 94 mph at the local drag strip. Try to find that elsewhere with heated seats and 150 mph stability in other cars for $350 a month.


Best Features

The T U R B O! I also like the dial for the sunroof and infinitely variable level controls for the HVAC.


Worst Features

Please give me an independent suspension, I'm tired of spinning out when the road surface gets bad.

Review

The 2006 Volkswagen GTI is great to drive, quick off the mark, finally capable of keeping up with the Opel OPC, has a smooth ride, and great comfort. You have got to love German engineering.


Best Features

The leather trim and "power on tap." This is a great overall car.


Worst Features

1st gear a bit "hard"

Review

After couple of thousand miles with the car mostly on the highway I am convinced that this is the best Golf every built by VW. A very stylish appearance combined with a powerful engine and an excellent suspension makes this Golf a sports car for the everyday usage.


Best Features

Pro: Handling, engine, gearbox. Cons: No equal competitors :-)


Worst Features

Nothing to improve!
