Since I've only had this car for almost
a week, reliability and quality is not
a question that can be answered yet.
For this reason, I'm giving it a
neutral rating. After 100,000 miles
I'll let you know how reliable it was
and how it holds together.
I bought this car partly because I see
it as a more practical(and less costly)
version of the Audi TT. All-wheel drive
(4-motion), similar engine, similar
chassis, great stereo, great interior.
This is a luxury car in Golf hatchback
clothing. Automatic climate control
seems to be working great.
The rain sensor wipers which
slow down or speed up with the
intensity of the rain. Seat side
bolsters on the optional leather seats
feel great on the drive home from
work. The leather steering wheel is
The tuned exhaust sounds great!
This is my opinion, but I think I would
rather have four 17-inch rims and a 17-
inch rim with a full size spare tire
(which come in regular GTI's)than four
18-inch rims with no spare tire.
Instead of a spare tire, you get a
small electric air pump and liquid tire
