2007 Volkswagen GTI 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)
Review
Have had GTI for 2 weeks now. The air conditioning compressor "detonated" after two days requiring a complete system replacement and 5 days in the shop waiting for parts. Have had check engine light go on and off for no apparent reason twice since then. Other than that it has been great, good power and handling, great ride, nice, thoughtful features, though with room for improvement. The radio is great, as are the seats, front and rear. The power is nice, though there is a bit of torque steer. The DSG gearbox works best if you let it do itís thing. Sport mode is best for hills when engine braking is needed. Incredible brakes. Lovely headlights.
Favorite Features
Seats, adjustable steering wheel, the engine and DSG gearbox. The satellite radio is very cool, great sound. Great ergonomics.
Suggested Improvements
Much, much, better quality control. More cubbyholes within reach of driver move vanity mirror lights onto sunshade. Have trip computer explain what check engine light is telling you. Air pressure monitoring system for tires. Better mix function for CD changer.
