2009 Volkswagen GTI PZEV 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)
Review
First thing I noticed is that this car isn't as fast off the line as the 1.8T I had (04 Jetta GLI). It had an upgraded ECU, but even with that turned off it was quicker than the TSI 2.0T that is in this new car. This is probably due to the fact the MK5 is a much bigger car than the MK4. Other than speed off the line this car is my saving grace. It is much smoother than the MK4 Jetta I had, and on long rides it's so nice. Manual is a must on this car. Also, I should have gotten the upgraded stereo because sometimes I just want to rock out that 6 free months of Sirius (could sound better) Do NOT get additional ipod adapter plug in that is in center console. GET JUST THE HEADPHONE JACK!!
Favorite Features
-6 speed manual -18" 'Shredder' rims as I've gotten to call them -Heated seats -Feels like a cockpit when you sit in driver's seat -Momo-esque steering wheel -bi-Xenon headlights -Sunroof -Heated mirrors (yes they work) -5 years/90,000 mile warranty for an additional $8 a month
Suggested Improvements
-ipod plug-in in center console is hard to use. You have to select the song, quickly plug it in and hope that when you hit CD it recognizes it. -Standard stereo -Rear windshield wipper has 1 setting. -REV LIMITER when not in gear (1 & 2)?! -Click turn signal once to change lanes it goes 3 times
