The perfect car for those who care about driving.
2017 Volkswagen GTI S
Outside of a set of tires, I haven't had any extra maintenance costs other than oil changes. The vehicle is equally comfortable on long road trips or short hops around town. Due to its diminutive size, it is easy to maneuver in tight quarters, yet it has a decent amount of cargo space. As to features, the car is not laden with tech, but has all the necessary accoutrements of a modern car, things like android and iPhone connectivity, heated seats, rearview camera, and a lot of nooks and crannies for life's daily detritus. Details and performance are what set this car apart. For example, the door pockets are lined with a felt material; something not highly noticeable, but a clever touch to quell rattles. All the switchgear feel solid, the doors shut with a reassuring thunk, and the hatch opens and closes needing only a firm tug on the handle. Topping all these positives, however, is the car's engine and suspension. The turbo is perfect for that mad rush into interstate traffic or for that playful romp through a set of s-shaped corners. The suspension handles these outbursts with equal part dignity and verve. One's courage is reached before the car's limits are. Overall a superb vehicle and highly recommended.
