2009 Volkswagen GTI 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)

Review

i can think of a more unbeatable combination of style, performance, and daily driveability. if you want a sport compact that can haul stuff, and people, efficiently, quietly, stylishly and look just at home on the track or local meet as it does taking your wife to a nice restaurant downtown and your kids to school, this is it. it strikes the perfect balance between sport and comfort (with a lean towards sport). other cars like the speed 3 and cobalt ss may be faster and handle a bit better, but they are by small margins, and those margins are not big enough to overlook what the GTI offers compared to those vehicles. a one trick pony it is not, but it very well may be the best dd of all time.

Favorite Features

EPIC high speed stability, perfectd crash test scores, flawless and high quality interior (best in class), potent amounts of low and mid range torque, quiet, perfect ride handling balance, wonderful exhaust note and the seats and steering wheel are second to none. oh and the plaid is the way to go.

Suggested Improvements

mostly all addressed with the MKVI, body roll could stand to be a bit more in check, and an easier way to adjust the seating (a la honda). aside from that not much else!
