2007 Volkswagen GTI 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)
Review
Ordered my GTI to get all the features I desired (took 4 months from order to delivery). The GTI is a joy to drive. DSG transmission is flawless. Switches and controls feel particularly solid. Experience only minor turbo lag (when engine accelerates from less than ~2000 rpm). Above 2000 rpm you feel like you're in a rocket! While car can take regular gas, performance is clearly enhanced with premium. After 1200 miles, getting 26-27 mpg for mostly highway driving (75-80 mph). Car is very quiet at speed. Optional 17 inch low profile all season tires are significantly less stiff than the summer tires. Excellent integration of radio and nav system with instrument panel display.
Favorite Features
DSG transmission with option for fully automatic, automatic with sport mode or manual control with paddle shifters. Get good gas mileage while allowing rapid acceleration when needed. Multifunction display between gauges with steering wheel controls for radio and MFD keep your eyes on the road.
Suggested Improvements
The iPod interface is useable but poor (doesn't display song info). Front seat bolsters are a bit high, harder to get out of seats. Oil changes are expensive, requires synthetic oil. Navigation system needs faster processor, display has slow update when at highway speeds and less than .5 mile scale.
