Used 2008 Volkswagen GTI Consumer Reviews
I have my 2008 GTI for almost a year now, and I have to say every time I get into it I still smile. When I get on the road and I have to get onto the highway the power of this car takes my breath away still. My husband has a honda si and that is a great car too but when I drive his car, I miss my GTI, I just love the instant turbo power you get when you step on the gas pedal, and you don't have to down shift to get that power. I have had lots of people stop and tell me how much they like my car, or ask questions. This is one great car, comfortable, fast, great on gas, I put snow tires on it for the winter and it was great in the snow, and I always feel confident driving this car. I Love it
Pure fun to drive but be prepared to pay for it. Reliability is poor in spite of the vaunted German engineering. You will also need to find your own German mechanic as the dealers routine inspection will almost always find additional problems that need attention.
