After owning this car for two years with absolutely no problems I am happy!
I am a very satisfied with my 2010 GTI 2 door. Pretty much a base model with the dsg transmission. 35000 miles later and I am now a VW convert, I bought this as an emotional buy knowing VW's hit or miss reliability. The fit and finish is second to none and I have still not heard any unexplained rattles.
Mileage has been outstanding, 32.1 overall with about 85 % being highway miles. I can get about 37 to 39 MPG's highway when I do 60 consistently and high 20's around town.
Fun to drive factor is great, power is always on tap with minimal turbo lag. It handles well for fwd. Highly recommend!!!!!
Engine power delivery.
Build quality, I am amazed!
Wind noise is noticeable at highway speeds.
DSG and 40000 mile service are way too expensive. I don't care how much I saved during the first thirty six thousand miles 800++++ is not in line with what is done.
