"The 2008 GTI is a superb car in every respect. I have owned Porsche 911 and Boxters, BMW's and domestics and this car rankes at the top. The mileage is better than EPA wstimates (I'm getting 27 mpg in town and local driving). This car handles and accellerates like a 911 - the turbo and engine are smooth and the 6 speed automatic shifts instantly in manual mode. Definetly a quality car to consider if your looking at a BMW, Audi, Lexus or similar upper end coupe."
"20k with a highly modded '07 and not a single mechanical issue...I'm pretty pleased with this vehicle overall.
Build is Audi quality, except I had a trim piece fall off on the initial ride home from the dealer. Aside from that minor issue, all is well with the vehicle.
Mileage with spirited/aggressive driving averaging 27 in town, 33 on the highway.
a great car, I would recommend it.
"I could not be happier with my new (to me) 2006 GTI Wolfsburg Limited Edition!! I absolutely love my old 1970 VW Bug and haven't been happy with a car since I had to park it a few years ago. Now I am happy once again with my new GTI. It handles like a dream, has more features than I will ever figure out and looks great going down the road. It has more power than I should probably be trusted with since it is going much faster than it feels like and handles like nothing I have ever driven before. People have told me I was crazy to be stuck on my old VW like I am, and don't get me wrong, it is still sitting in my front yard, but I assure you, this new one will get twice the miles as the old one. Thanks to Volkswagen for building a quality vehicle all the way around."
