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


I received a new GTI for graduation. On my first trip to college with less than 3,000 miles, 6 weeks old, the compressor cracked and backed off the engine shredding the belt. This car stranded me 120 miles from home. My parents brought car back to VW to be fixed. The fix lasted five days. My parents attempted to drive up to my college and the compressor shut down again, this time 590 miles from home. My parents brought it back to VW again, now they are saying two weeks at minimum. This car only has 2000 miles on it. The Honda Civic Si is looking really good right now.

Best Features

When it is running, it's a blast to drive.

Worst Features

Improve the quality, workmanship, reliability...should I go on.
