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


This car is not only a true driver's car but is also refined and comfortable for a long distance drive. It's moderate pricing sets it apart from more expensive cars such as a BMW or Audi. Long term quality has in the past been an issue, but in my initial 5,000 miles and 7 weeks of ownership, I have not seen any problems.

Best Features

The engine and 6-speed manual transmission are a true pleasure. The flat torque curve allows power to kick in early. The leather seats are comfortable with the lumbar support. The hatch offers the ability to carry large items for such a small car. The handling and breaking are excellent.

Worst Features

Allow owners to shut off the annoying daytime running lights. Correct the speedometer - it reads 7% high. Make the radio display visible to polarized sun glasses. Improve the audio quality. Increase the size of the fuel and temperature gages.
