2009 Vw GTI, 4 cylinder w/ turbo, 180 horsepower, Great gas mileage, very affordable

I have a 2009 vw gti 2 door hatchback. Its a 4 cylinder with a turbo that pushes about 180 horsepower to the front wheels. It also has a dsg 6 speed transmission which brings this car to life on takeoff. i can drive it in regular automatic which is pretty quick or i can shift to sports mode which increases the rpm between shifts plus i have paddle shifters on my steering wheel for that true sports car feel. Overall i love this car and i would recommend it to anyone

Volkswagen golf 2009, solid performance.

Superb quality of manufacture. Excellent handling, steering and suspension with more power and acceleration than you could possibly need. Seating position and real visibility are outstanding. Mechanically well above average, reliability is nearly 100%.

Great zippy everyday driver.

The Volkswagen gti is a great everyday driver. It gets decent gas mileage on both the highway and in the city. Although it is small and compact it still has enough room on the inside to fit 4 passengers comfortably. Overall the gti is a great vehicle.
