This car is so much fun to drive

I have owned probably 10 VWs, including numerous Jettas, a convertible Rabbit, and a Quantum. This is by far the most fun to drive. A couple of months ago, my sales guy sent me a text and told me he could upgrade my Jetta and lower my payment by $100 a month. I told him I did not want another Jetta, I wanted a Golf GTI. I have wanted one for a long time. I ended up with the 2.0T SE with beautiful titan black leather with red stitch. The exterior paint is deep black pearl metallic. I love it!!!!! The first time I really hit the gas to get on the freeway, my neck actually snapped back. It is so fast and small and zippy. I also have a 2004 Land Rover Discovery (which I really love), but I don't even want to drive it because the GTI is so much fun. I love the trim and the fact that it has 4 doors and the hatchback. The two things that I don't like as much as the Jetta - I like the temperature control system in the Jetta over the GTI and I really miss having an old fashioned navigation system not connected to a phone. Buy this car - you will be very happy!!!!!

Why was it shipped with a broken switch

I can't do a review Justice like all of those available elsewhere. It's a perennial top winner for car and driver and Motor Trend and other magazines. I was in a 2016 M3 which I traded out of because it was a colossal waste of money. Super fun car of course just no where you can possibly drive that car living in the city. I actually enjoy driving the GTI more. The GTI is like a magnificent go kart and while not as fast, at all, as the M3 it doesn't feel like driving a really heavy missile. Steering feedback is better. I hate it when it arrived it had a broken window switch and the dealership never bothered to call me to tell me that the part was in, and my annoyance at that lack of customer service and initial quality forces me to give this for stars. Sorry for the run-on sentence but voice to text

Does all the little things well. Your sport car, your daily cruiser, long range hauler all rolled into one.

Great car but higher sticker price. The gas mileage consumption is higher specially on city use.
