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


For the price, this is one of the best cars you can buy. I looked at a Civic Si and RSX Type-S, both of them had no low end power at all, both needed to be reved to the sky and you were ALWAYS shifting. The GTI has torque on tap all the time. It pulls on the highway in 6th gear with little trouble. The design on the interior is well done. The package 0 and 1 however aren't as good looking as the package 2 interior, but the cloth seats are great looking. As far as sound systems go, the GTI has nothing near a killer stock system, but that's not why you buy this car. Its ride is great for the every day driver, even for the driver with the sporty side to them. The 6-speed transmission shifts are short and distinct.

Best Features

The turbo power, detail, driver AND passenger seat flexability, and Bi-xenon headlights (usualy found in $60,000+ luxury cars only).

Worst Features

Add a stock sound system (although mine is now heavily modified) and have the seats stay in the foward position to let people in the back rather than having them flip back on their own.
