2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI SE 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)


Review

So happy with the GTI, considering an R next (or maybe just mod this one!) Consider the performance package. The larger brakes and front differential are worth the price difference. The rear seats are useable, but don’t necessarily warrant 4 doors. Hope VW continues to offer the 2 door and brings it back with the R.

Review

Super fun to drive, held two adults and two kids easily but close quarters for long trips. Great acceleration, awesome handling, stiff ride but it's a sports car, tight steering, nice interior, 8/10 for audio, but 6/10 for storage and roominess. Mine was in the shop three times in the second year (under warranty!) for mysterious fuel system problems. They replaced the fuel pump three times and i guess got it right the third time - no more problems! No other repairs during the three years I had it. The only built-in problem was it's a torque-y little car with low profile, summer tires. Great when it's sunny and dry but not when roads are slick and don't bother in the snow. I got separate rims with snow tires and they helped a little. Bottom line - great car if you enjoy a spirited ride AND don't need to transport a family AND don't need to drive in snow. If I could have a second car for sunny weekend, wife-and-me-only getaways, this would be it.

2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI S 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

I just sold mine after three and a half years and 37000 miles, but only because I needed something bigger. Really, this is a remarkable car for the money. It gives a satisfying and solid feel to drive, like a more expensive German car would, but is inexpensive to buy and operate. I had absolutely no trouble with mine. The engine is very smooth, the controls are fluid, the handling/ride compromise is pretty ideal for the kind of suburban driving that I do. Two relatively small complaints. First, the seat adjustability could be better (note that my car was the S model, and didn't have power seats). Second, the wheels are more prone to cosmetic damage from curbs than is necessary. The face of the wheel is approximately flush with the sidewall of the tire.

Review

I love this car, it is my daily driver and the interior is extremely comfortable. For the price point, I really have no complains. It is a hatchback, FWD, so don't expect it to be as fast as a Ferrari. realistically, it is a very good car.
