Best Car I Have Owned

2006 Volkswagen GTI New 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


This is by far the best car I have owned. It's safe, I get about 30-35 mpg on the highway, and the car is quick out of the box. I did have mine chipped by GIAC and I am now in love with this car. The gas mileage is the same and it's a blast to drive. Also, I have yet to take it to the dealer for any warranty issues. VW has stepped up their quality big time from previous generations. This car brings me back to my first car which was a 1984 Rabbit GTI.

Best Features

The DSG transmission is great. This car has good build quality and provides a great bang for the buck in terms of performance, and interior quality compared to Civic SI and Mazdaspeed3.

Worst Features

Give it more power to compete with Mazdaspeed3 and limited slip differential.
