A Fun Car, But Take Good Care of It
By Stuart N on


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


My '07 GTI is the most enjoyable new car I have ever owned. It's the perfect size and I've got plenty of space for people and cargo, too. VW styling never gets old and the retro interior is cool, comfortable and durable. The DSG is best auto-manual transmission ever made. It makes the car feel sporty without making me feel tired. It's a sports car that doesn't beat you up. But stick to the base car and skip the leather package. Otherwise you have a $30K GTI.

Best Features

DSG, retro seats, xenon lights, handling and steering, radio.

Worst Features

Electrical problems have dampened the ownership experience. I've had a coil pack go and repairs for engine and oil pressure sensor lights. The dealer, Langhorne VW, has fixed all of these with no charge. One time they took me on no notice on a Saturday and had me back on the road in an hour.
