2010 Volkswagen GTI: Chauffeuring Made Fun

November 08, 2010


This past weekend I was saddled with being the designated driver to a couple of friends, having to drive us from event to event around L.A. in our 2010 Volkswagen GTI.

I usually hate driving in the city -- distracted drivers and traffic -- but this time I actually didn't mind it so much. Such smooth and quiet power and so easy to work that clutch in stop-and-go traffic. I think I'm even getting used to the weird angle of the driver seat bottom. Because of all that, I didn't grumble too much having to play chauffeur to my friends. However, I think my having too much fun might have been problematic for my woozy passengers. Oh well, at least we got to where we were going quickly and I was in a good mood when we arrived.
