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

Review

I've had this car for one year. Fun car to drive, and its utility has been important to me. The gas mileage is reasonable for the engine performance as well. Excellent fit and finish, and only one questionable item in terms of any defect, which has not been a problem. I wanted a car with a sunroof, still having reasonable headroom. That put the Hondas (Civic and Accord coupes) out of contention, by comparison.

Best Features

The engine's torque and flexibility are outstanding. The shifter is smooth, not as short throw as perhaps a few other manual transmissions, but not bad. Good room in the useful back seats, which split-fold. Interior materials are first-rate in this price range. Plenty of headroom for tall folks.

Worst Features

The front seat bolsters are a bit difficult to navigate getting into the car. There is nose-heavy understeer in spirited driving; it is front wheel drive, after all, and the brakes, while effective, do have a soft-feel that seems to be a VW-Audi trait.
