lemon of the bunch
By brp on


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


I bought my gti because i thought it would be a great and reliable car but it turned out I was wrong on a few things.The problems started when i was going around a turn doing speed limit and it all of a sudden felt like i had a flat tire and started slowing down then was fine a few seconds later, this was taken to the dealer and they could not find a problem so i picked it up and this problems occurs on a daily basis but they say they cannot find anything, it sometimes will not let me press on brakes, maybe xds overreacting?it can be scary when brakes wont work and I have to downshift to slow down, it has been in twice for this along with once for a leaky sunroof and radio turns itself down

Best Features

the plaid seats,seat warmers are amazing and heat up fast,good sound system,i love the rims, good wipers, satelite radio, the car is quick but can be slow on response. I've heard nothing but good things about these cars and every car co has a lemon sometimes,I think they are good cars but I just gota lemon

Worst Features

I think that they are great cars but i just got a lemon out of the bunch, i have had it for 2000 miles and it has been in the shop half of the time i have owned it and have put most of the miles on it drivin to the dealership far away,has potential to be great car but work on xds and the reliability
