Obsessed with my car

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


Got this car CPO with 9k miles on it a month and a half ago and have put about a thousand miles on it since. This car is incredible. I was in a Mazda3 for a while before this car and this car just blows it away on every level. Interior is high quality on par with Audi etc. Excellent touch screen stereo and iPod interface with a very high attention to detail from the leather wrapped flat bottom steering wheel to the subtle red stitching throughout. Very comfortable seats etc. The engine (2liter turbo) coupled with 6 speed manual (how could you get the DSG??) is a dream. Seemingly bottomless torque and plenty of power when I need it with a nice exhaust sound. Excellent exterior design. Grade A

Best Features

2liter Turbo engine, effortless yet precise 6 speed manual, touch screen stereo, steering wheel, interior and exterior design, heated seats beings standard

Worst Features

Interior build quality, particularly factory window seals and channels are poorly installed. After a week of having it I noticed wind noise at freeway speeds and door rattles. Took it to the dealer and they replaced the door seals and channels, free of charge and all is well. The car is top drawer, but it is questionable how they could ship these cars from Germany with poorly assembled door panels and seals. Ride quality can be a little rough, but thats due mainly to the 18" wheels and LA's horrible roads. If I wanted a soft ride I would have bought a Buick
