GTI is Here to Stay
By Ian on
2006 Volkswagen GTI New 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I absolutely love my GTI. It's nimble, tourqey, and comfortable. I get compliments from everyone! For the price, this car is in a league of its own. I was at first apprehensive about the plaid seats, but they have grown on me. The interior layout and build quality is top notch. And the rear seat is surprisingly roomy, two large adults fit back there with room to spare. My only complaint is that seats need a crank for reclining instead of the knob. Once I turn the ignition and take it on the road I forget about all the bad and simply love taking it fast around corners!
The 6-speed manual, rear hatch release, rear seat space, gas mileage (32mpg highway), sunroof, and satellite radio.
VW engineers need to improve the stereo and exhaust sound quality.
