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


I really wanted a smaller car, with decent gas mileage, good performance and a somewhat upscale feel without spending 40K. I also need a back seat for occasional passenger transportation. I looked at the civics, and just could not do it, it's seems like a kids car to me, I also looked at The toyota corrola (better gas mileage, but the most boring vehicle) absolutely no fun to drive. After test driving the GTI, I was sold, it was perfect, sporty, but comfortable, easy power, not a brute, easy to maneuver in the city, quick acceleration for passing and the best interior of the cars I tested. I'm 40 years old, and this car is a blast, but also very practical.

Best Features

The best thing about this car: It's a comfortable car for long trips, and a great car for the city, it's also a sports car when you want it to be, it's really pretty fast

Worst Features

Stereo controls on the steering wheel to search for stations while playing the radio. (it has all the other controls, wonder why they left that out?)
