2006 Volkswagen GTI New 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I traded in a Hummer H2 for this little GTI due to the recent fuel prices. I was only getting 11 mpg city and 15 highway in the H2. Also the H2 only has a 30 gallon tank. It was costing me an additional $300 dollars a month on top of the monthly payment. The GTI gets 24 mpg city and over 30 highway. My fast saves me over $2,000 dollars a year in gas plus I took a loan out for fewer years. My insurance went down as well.
The handling is exceptional. The pick up feels like a V8.
I don't like the stereo with its distortion volume control. It adjusts itself if the volume is too loud. I like to play music loud and I don't need the volume going down when I want it up.
