2007 Volkswagen GTI 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


The 2007 GTI is a very well made car, the only significant repair after 90K miles was rear wheel bearings. There was also a problem with the PCV valve which was fixed under a service bulletin. The car also loses or burns some oil - not unexpected for a turbo, I guess, but you must check the oil regularly. Numerous interior squeaks and rattles were corrected after I replaced the horrid stock Continental tires with BFG SuperSport A/S and then Goodyear Eagle GT A/S. Ride and handling are great, the stability control is excellent. No steering feel due to the electric steering, but you learn to live without it. An almost perfect, practical sporty 4- dr hatch at a reasonable price.

Favorite Features

Great torque and tall gearing make it a joy to shift through the gears with both power and reasonable fuel economy. Perfect for point-and-squirt moves through traffic. The dual-zone climate control (not offered in other years) is great - not expected in this price range. Always solid and stable.

Suggested Improvements

Sound system nothing special. Front seats comfortable but the Recaros in my previous SVT Focus were much more so. Headlight washers waste washer fluid (always operate when washing windshield with lights on). Car feels solid and heavy, with zero steering feel - could be more fun to drive.
