2006 Volkswagen GTI New 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I have had so many problems with this car in terms of rattles that it's not even funny. In terms of engine, driving, fun factor, etc., it's great, but when you have to turn your stereo on every single time you drive just so you can drown out the sounds of the rattles, that stinks. I really like the way this car looks, handles and drives, but I have had way too many little problems with this car, noises, quirks, weather strips coming off, to ever want to buy a VW again.
Interior design, fun factor to drive, the European features.
Work on the interior build quality. Why the heck does this car feel like it's coming apart?
