2009 Volkswagen GTI 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Just bought right off the truck yesterday! Fast, responsive, limited torque steer, and corners well on the 18" summer tires. AC is a bit weak in the Las Vegas heat (117 degrees!) but that's not normal summer heat for most. My other car is a BMW 330i and the VW is as much fun to drive...I do miss some standard luxuries such as built-in Bluetooth, but for 24K I'm not gonna be picky. This car is well built, solid, and performs as a German engineered vehicle should. Turbo lag is nonexistent for the most part, and the 6-speed tranny is descent, a little long on the throw distance. (I bought the standard not the DSG). Good by overall, I would recommend it to the budget sports buyer.

Best Features

Turbo, overall design and looks. nice interior details, feels very comfortable. Great gas mileage.

Worst Features

Make Bluetooth standard- The dealer installed option is awful looking.
