Expert Review

You'll Like The 2007 Volkswagen GTI If...

A powerful, flexible engine combined with flat, responsive handling, a lot of grip in the corners and front-wheel-drive predictability makes the GTI a joy to drive enthusiastically wherever appropriate.

Golf Fahrenheit limited edition 2007.

Performance is great, reliable. Cons are that parts mostly come from Europe. Uses expensive gas, after 10 years some problems started to show up, such as motor problems and brakes problems. Seats are still really comfortable and feeling changing gears is great for an automatic car.

- Juan A

Great car to drive around but expensive to fix.

My gate drives like a dream. People say it drives like an adult sized go cart. It is very easy and comfortable to drive and the interior has nice features. It is very expensive to fix and has had a few problems with the exhaust and other mechanical problems.

- Angela K

It's a fairly lightweight car, so it's doesn't have very good traction in snow and ice.

It's compact, I love that I can park virtually anywhere. It's fairly lightweight, so it's not good in the snow. It's been a dependable car, with no major issues.

- Claire J

Safety Recalls (1)

Exterior Lighting > Headlights Sep 17, 2007
Report Receipt Date:
Sep 17, 2007
NHTSA Campaign:
07V442000
Summary:
CERTAIN VEHICLES FAIL TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 108, "LAMPS, REFLECTIVE DEVICES, AND ASSOCIATED EQUIPMENT." SOME VEHICLES MAY NOT HAVE HAD A REQUIRED CAP INSTALLED WHICH DISABLES THE HEADLIGHT HORIZONTAL AIM AND SOME VEHICLES MAY CONTAIN A CAP THAT DISABLES THE VERTICAL AIMING SCREW.
Consequence:
INAPPROPRIATE, NON-STANDARD LIGHTING COULD REDUCE VISIBILITY OF VEHICLES AND INCREASE THE POTENTIAL FOR A CRASH.
Remedy:
DEALERS WILL INSPECT FOR THE PRESENCE OF A CAP IN THE SOCKET OF THE LOW BEAM HORIZONTAL AIMING SCREW AND INSTALL ONE IF MISSING, AND INSPECT FOR THE PRESENCE OF A CAP IN THE SOCKET OF THE VERTICAL AIMING SCREW AND IF PRESENT, THE CAP WILL BE REMOVED. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR ABOUT OCTOBER 31, 2007. OWNERS MAY CONTACT VW AT 1-800-822-8987.
