2007 Volkswagen GTI Hatchback 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)


Review

I have owned this car for 2 years now. This has been, overall, the best car I have ever owned, and I have owned a lot of vehicles over the last 40 yrs of driving. The quality is exceptional and the driving puts a smile on my face every time I drive it. The fun factor and mileage make it a "10".


Best Features

The DSG transmission is wonderful. 18" Hefs our great. Gas mileage is good. Fun to drive factor.


Worst Features

Awkward position of cruise control.

2007 Volkswagen GTI Hatchback 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

The GTI is amazing. gets better with age. Perfect for urban areas-- park it anywhere. Equally at home ripping down curvy country roads in the mountains or cruising on the highway. Equipped with winter wheels/tires/roof box it easily can take four skiing or riding. Cruising range over 400 miles-fill ups are infrequent. VW put the money where it counts in this new gti. The handling is crisp and predictable. Squirt through some traffic and take the exit a little faster or go for a Sunday drive and enjoy motoring with the windows down and sunroof open. Sound and options could be better. If you can only own one car this is it. buy it used and save some $. Fun and reliable. kids luv it.


Best Features

Engine performance, suspension, incredible grip. the rigidity of the chassis-- Four door option, Bigger back seat, climatronic, headlight washers, cockpit lighting, steering wheel, power lumbar support, go for leath 18 inch wheel and tire package, sunroof, lights. Other VW people say hi on the road


Worst Features

I wish vw would make it look more happy put more adjustments in the seats like memory and remove any buttons or slots that don't function. More interior/exterior color options and make it more quirky and a little less expensive to buy with dollar. 4motion. More power. Trailer hitch in rear bumper

2007 Volkswagen GTI Hatchback 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

This car is fun in every way and has all the little features that make it feel more expensive than it is. The engine is so torquey, I never wanna drive a VTEC again. Perfect gear ratios in the 6 speed. Makes my 20 mile daily commute fun. Your car should be fun.


Best Features

Everything


Worst Features

Eats a quart of oil in between changes. Original tires suck, get goodyear eagle gt's and you'll be happy. Driver door didn't "know" it was open (no interior light) for a while, then fixed itself.

Review

This car is outstanding! I have a loaded 2 door model and have had it for 2 years. It's the best car I've ever had. People constantly stop me to ask me about it. It's comfortable and very fast. The mpg is consistent. There is surprisingly a ton of room in this car. VW has great cars and this one is top of the heap!


Best Features

DSG, navigation, innovative VW emblem that opens the hatch, climatronic, ipod compatibility, xenon headlights


Worst Features

bluetooth, touch screen navigation, ipod interfacing

2007 Volkswagen GTI Hatchback 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

I love the car. I looked at other cars such as the Civic SI and Subaru WRX, but I fell in love with the VW. I love the design, both exterior and interior. The performance is great, when requested. I love the ride--a great balance between comfort & performance.


Best Features

Turbo, Xenons, Heated Seats, Hufs and of course the steering wheel.


Worst Features

lit glovebox, painted rear bumper, radio needs higher contrast.
