"i love my gti, i have a black"2001 1.8 turbo" 5 speed with sunroof. this car has amazing acceleration thanks to the turbo. i drive it hard, often taking the rpm's to around 7000. it feels solid and safe at high speeds. the four wheel disk brakes work great ,traction control is another good feature. i talked my girlfriend into buying a vw instead of the mazda 3 she was lookin at. she got an 06 gli 2.0 turbo. i have no problem keeping up with her in my gti. i am also very happy to see that this vehicle held its value. . if your looking for a fast,safe,fun car that gets great gas mileage . test drive a turbo gti !!!"
