2006 Volkswagen GTI New 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
This is my fourth VW, and by far the best I have driven to date. It gets excellent gas millage, has tons of torque, has great handling (much better than the MKIV), and has an awesome interior. Do yourself a favor, go test drive one. You will not be disappointed.
The handling, interlagos plaid seats, and torque.
My only gripe is that I have a leaking CV boot with only 5,000 miles on the car.
