2008 Volkswagen GTI 2dr Hatchback w/Prod. End 05/08 (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

This car is so much fun to drive. Handles like magic, and acceleration in second gear is seriously amazing. Road noise is considerable, and the entire fuel system went at 9,200 miles (the pump and sensor had to be replaced per a TSB [technical service bulletin] so the problem is not uncommon). Other than having to deal with VW road side service just a few months into the car ownership, it has been a real joy. If you live in a northern climate, the sport tires will make your winter the worst you've ever experienced.

Favorite Features

Fast, sporty, looks good, intimidating in your rear view mirror! Standard headlights (xenon?), and the upgraded stereo is decent if you can hear it over the road noise.

Suggested Improvements

Quality quality quality. It rattles like a two-year-olds front tooth. Again, broke down on me at 9,200 miles!!
