2012 Volkswagen GTI 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)

Review

Much more fun to drive than my 2007 Porsche 911 and my 2007 328i! Excellent suspension over the bumps. Incredible acceleration with the DSG. Very comfortable driver's seat. Nice thick sport steering wheel. Wonderfully balanced ride. Not at all harsh. You want harsh? Check out the Porsche 911 with 19" wheels or the 328i with run flat tires! Terrific interior and a real looker in Candy White! The best looking hatch I've ever seen! This car was an absolute steal at $24,000! Never had so much fun in a car! There is absolutely no justification for Porsche to charge $100,000 for the 911 when at $24,000, the GTI provides so much more fun! If you love to drive, the GTI will put a smile on your face!

Best Features

DSG transmission, driver's seat, satellite radio, sport steering wheel.

Worst Features

Memory seats would be nice. So would dimming mirrors. Maybe a factory tint for the windows. Otherwise, nothing.
