Need a sport coupe for the real world? This is it
Both front windows fell into door at 4500km. Repaired and replaced at no charge.
This is my first car, purchased in Nov. 2003. Fantastic performance, love the 1.8T, it's lighter than the VR6 engine and better suited to the GTI's chassis. Good handling with upgraded 17" Wheels, the car feels very connected to the road. This car is very fast!
The interior is luxurious and refined, the cabin has a premium feel that isn't to be found in comparably priced sport coupes and hatchbacks. Interior materials are high in quality, and everything is assembled with care, could spend all day in there! I'm able to get great gas mileage, but it requires premium fuel.
I highly recommend this car to anyone who is looking for performance, safety and quality engineering all packed into one fun hatchback. The GTI is a good buy for enthusiastic drivers who need a fun car that can be driven day in and day out. This car constantly brings a smile to my face every time I get behind the wheel... to see what I'm talking about, go test drive one today!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
