2006 Volkswagen GTI New 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
Even though I've only had it for 3 weeks, it's an absolute blast to drive! Now I understand V-Dub's "driver's wanted" tag-line. My wife bought a 2005 MkIV in 2/06 and that turned me on to the GTI. The car is perfect and fast as heck. I'm 54 yrs. old and have had Cadillac's, an Old's Aurora, Mazda6 (good car) but the GTI is the fastest, best handling car so far. Period.
The powertrain, comfort, and smooth, quiet ride. Did I mention it's fast and the torque is available from the basement (1,800 rpm's) all the way to the penthouse (5,500 rpm's)? AMAZING! Also, the xenon lights and plaid seats are slick.
Nada, zip, ziltch. This is a great car and bang for the buck.
