"I had a 07 GTi that was totaled in a accident. The car held up exactly like it should the passenger compartment was solid and noone was hurt. Today I will purchasing a 08 GTi just in a different color. Car is fun to drive and has many extras included. Can't wait to break another one in."
"I love this car. I owned a honda accord, nissan maxima, and a chevy extreme. I wanted a compact car for school since i commute 40 miles every three days per week. I love the style of the car, and the performance... i also recently raced my friends civic si which was stock and my car won. im pretty much happy with my car"
"purchased in 2006.
have 19,000 miles & avg. 28.4 mpg.
my best on a trip was 32.7 mpg.
this little hatch back does it all--can put my bicycle in the back without taking off the front wheel. i also carry two kayaks on top.
purched the special vw wheel package ( summer tires )--and it makes a different.
not a cheap car--but ya get what ya pay for."
"14700 miles in 9 months. I use it as a daily driver in the NYC metro area. Incredibly fun to drive with only a Revo stage-1 with stock everything. Estimated 250HP and 285 lb. ft. torque. Definitely felt the power difference. Excellent on gas averaging 23 city and 34 hwy. Fun, fast, economical and amazing utility."
"This is the best blend of performance, comfort, style, and versatility I have ever driven.
The value is unbelievable. You get so much for the money. You get a lot of stuff that other manufacturers charge for (Xeon headlights, active steering, satellite radio, etc.)
You can smoke just about anyone and still pick up an entire room at IKEA!
I absolutely love this car and would recommend it to anyone hands down."
