Still happy with my GTI
By Eric on


2008 Volkswagen GTI 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Leased it two years ago this month. Now has almost 25K on it. The only problem so far was a fuel sending unit which kept indicating car was out of fuel. Dealer fixed it and no further problems. Car drives great, I average 27-28 MPG in a commute that is equal parts highway and city driving. I have owned MANY MANY VWs over the years, and some have been very problematic. Not this one. I plan to buy it at the end of the lease due to its reliability, economy and performance. Once it's mine I will chip it and replace the OEM wheels & tires to improve the performance ever more.

Best Features

Heated fabric seats, stereo, interior lighting, steering wheel.

Worst Features

I've never liked those Denver alloy wheels.
