After buying a new 2012 VW passat in July 2012, I decided to trade it in for a new 2012 GTI.
While the passat was a nice BIG family sedan, I wanted to drive something fun and sporty.
Also, I was having alot of trouble seeing at night with the Passat.
Anyway, I got the new GTI over the weekend.
It is so entirely different than the passat.
I can understand why people say they look forward to driving it everyday.
I feel the same way.
The visibility, comfort and feel of the car is so great.
It's smaller, but still has plenty of room.
I find that I'm playing the stereo less now because I like listening to the sound of the engine and the turbo.
seats so comfortable, turbo engine, handling, gas efficiency, sportiness
The only improvement I would say is to add more inside storage compartments.
It's somewhat limited.
You can get by with what's available, but a little more would be nice.
That being said, I would still buy the car any day of the week.
