Best bang for the buck! Gas mileage/performance ratio is perfect.

The interior design is premium compared to other cars in the mid $20k price-range. Good old German engineering- they really make it look nice. Six speed manual is smooth as silk. Tried manual in new Camaro and WRX, both were terrible in comparison. Holds corners like glue, especially with a set of Michelin Pilot Super Sports. Performance is perfect for me, very zippy, turbocharger replaced but costs nothing under warranty, no real issues. Love this car

Volkswagen golf Gti quality and performance.

The VW Gtl is a very well built car with high performance engine and performance transmission. The car is highly reliable, has incredible handling and road feel for the driver and visibility is exceptional. Cost of maintenance is higher than similar models but the performance and ride make it worth it.

This is one of the funniest and most practical cars I have owned in one package

I love the car and it's performance. Fit and finish is great and comfortable and practical. I don't like the carbon buildup issues that I have already had to deal with. But overall I enjoy the car immensely. The one I bought was certified pre owned But it is still a very affordable car
