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


This car is exactly what I thought it would be. It will turn heads with its 18" wheels. One recommendation is get the gorilla gear and GTI mats. Your fast is worth the extra $700. This is a great car, everyone should have one.

Best Features

HID headlights, DSG tranny, heated leather seats, acceleration, paddle shifters, Bluetooth connectivity, Sirius radio, and heated washer nozzles.

Worst Features

ESP is a bit overwhelming. With 18" wheels, off the line the ESP takes over and shakes the car. The radio volume goes up and down while driving. I am only getting 22 mpg so far.
