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


I have not driven a car that gives you so much for the price. It's fantastic the way the motor and transmission work together. The DSG is the best auto-manual there is. The car feels very refined and stays relatively quiet on the road. The seats are awesome and I love the steering wheel. Loaded with features that are usually offered on luxury cars. Turbo lag is there low in the RPM range, but after driving a couple of weeks it is easy to get used to. The 4-door version has all the room I need. Carries 4 people comfortably, and my kid's car seat fits great. Have had no reliability issues. All around this is one of the best cars money can buy. Could not be happier with my purchase.

Best Features

Bi-xenon headlights, seats, steering wheel, motor, DSG, multifunction display, auto door locks, style, ride, handling, blue gauges with red lighting

Worst Features

Gas mileage is so-so, stereo is just okay but good enough, not much interior storage, 25 more horsepower would push this car over the top
