2010 Volkswagen GTI 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)


Bought on Halloween. Surprisingly fun to drive. Corners VERY well, great acceleration, drives great and TURNS HEADS. A few minor dislikes. Bluetooth has NO functionality at all. You can answer call, that's it. Have to physically touch phone to make a call (not a huge deal). Has no internal hatch release (other than emergency release in back near hatch door.) 2 Dr is very difficult to get to rear seat despite fancy new way to move front seat forward. No way to view a to-date cumulative MPG consumption as it resets itself when you turn the car off. Love the turn signals on the inside of the mirrors as well as out.

Best Features

Love the handling. Most responsive car I've ever driven. Scary fast at times. Really, really fun to drive. Heater will fry an egg (it's winter...haven't tried AC yet). Leather seats with GTI trim is off the hook.

Worst Features

MPG takes DRASTIC hit when even slightly aggressive. Will get 30-35 interstate driving but don't look to get more than 25 in town.....and less if you are aggressive at all. IPOD interface skips a few seconds between tracks. Offers an external jack but no radio interface for it (that was weird).
