More Fun and More Room than in an Audi

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


I've never owned an "auto" tranny car until my DSG-equipped GTI. I was injured and couldn't work a clutch for a couple months. But I also club race and like control and performance. I also need to haul music gear and my 10 year old son to the beach, etc. This car does all of it and then some. It offers great luxury with the leather, heated seats, and climate control. The 2.0T engine has plenty of punch and the DSG transmission is a chameleon: drive it easy in D, harder in S, or full in manual mode with the paddle shifters. I drove an A3 also (same platform) but the GTI was more fun to drive *and* has more headroom, shoulder room, and more room in the back. I highly recommended this car. My other car is a '79 Porsche 911 that I'll never sell.

Best Features

The DSG transmission, not much turbo lag, tons of room, nice appointments, and how it is so fun to drive.

Worst Features

I worry about reliability and rattles, but so far so good.
