Great car!

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


What a fun car! I was originally going to buy an Audi A3 when I came across this car with similar equipment for much less money. I got a Relfex Silver with DSG/XM Radio/18" wheels. My mileage has varied from 19-26 mpg in mixed driving. This thing is much bigger than it looks on the inside, and you can have adults sitting comfortably in the back.

Best Features

I like the stock HID headlights (no package purchase required). The DSG transmission is unlike anything I have experienced, it's top notch! Everything is tight so far, let's hope it is reliable.

Worst Features

The DRL should run on halogen, not $150 HID bulbs. Get rid of the black molding at the bottom, or at least paint it the same as the rest of the car. The seats can be rough on people with large frames.
