2006 Volkswagen GTI New 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
I purchased this car because I needed something reliable, fun to drive, and that had enough space inside. For the price, you really can't beat it. It's quick, handles great, and all the materials in the car are high quality. I drove both the Civic Si and Neon and the construction and quality of the GTI blow them away. From the quality of the paint job (very litte orange peel) to the material the dash is made out of. The inside is very comfortable, for such a small car, there is plenty of room inside for everyone to be comfortable and still have room for storage.
The turbo. The HID lights are great too, they are so much brighter than anything else.
The stereo stinks. It does not have enough power and it cuts out at high volumes. I replaced mine with an aftermarket system a week after I purchased the car.
