Slight adjustment but more than happy.

The car is comfortable for date night with my husband and also when we have to run errands with our 2 children who require one booster seat and one car seat. Spacious yet sporty. Some of the controls are hard to get used to initially if you are used to American made cars but are no trouble once you are used to them. Speakers and stock sound system are high quality. Interior is kind of plain but it works overall. Trunk is large.

I love having heated seats that is a bonus Leather seats is a must for me.

It runs good it is not very good in the snow. I had an oil leak which lasted almost a year until my brother helped me fix it. I enjoy taking it for long drives in the fall. It is pretty good on gas. You need to make sure you have all year tires so it is easier to drive with. Overall it is a car I would recommend to anyone.

Amazing performance and very economical. The amazing look of it is a huge bonus.

Absolutely love my GLI. It is so powerful feeling and smooth when I drive it. My favorite feature is the dual climate. Also love the details in the rims and the stealth look it has. Highly recommended!

It is not a standard Jetta, it is far more.

It's quick and nimble, handles beautifully, and I can still park it downtown. It's got good pickup as well as it's handling, and it actually has enough legroom for a 6'4" man

Cost of routine maintenance procedures is pricey such as oil changes and belt changes.

The transmission is very smooth. The exhaust notes sound amazing, as well as the turbocharger. The fuel efficiency is great as well.

It is a fairly reliable vehicle.

Performance wise it's great, pretty quick but can sometimes be a gas guzzler. Problems wise it has not given me much trouble.
