2006 Volkswagen GTI New 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
This car is built like a tank. I didn't realize it until after I bought it, but compared to Japanese cars it's a tank. I'm not knocking the Japanese cars, but I believe tin would be a good word to describe the outer materials. The car rides amazing, it is very quiet inside. It is a heavy car as well, so you won't feel the hitting. It is good aerodynamically. The engine is very responsive the torque band is very impressive. It's got good power all over the place. It's not a Corvette, but it is a good compromise. The fuel economy is wonderful. I can usually get above 30 mpg out of it. I would no doubt highly recommend this car. It is a great all around vehicle. Insurance isn't bad either. V Dub rocks.
