Why the 2008 Volkswagen GTI?

Handling

This car really is really fun on twisty roads. It has great grip and is quite flickable.

Past personal experience

I had several VW rabbits and a VW Passat in the past. I liked all of them much more than most of the other brand cars I have owned. They were all durable, well built, and fun to drive.

Materials & workmanship

The interior is very nicely put together. It feels like a much more expensive car than it actually is.

Interior styling

I like the plaid seats, the blue lighting. It is comfortable and ergonomic.

Why Not the 2008 Volkswagen GTI?

Fuel economy

The economy is OK for a sporty car, but it requires premium fuel for best performance. A sacrifice I am willlng to live with.

Feature availability

I would like to have been able to get homelink in my car. that is really my only complaint.

Cargo capacity

It is big enough for me, but if you need room for 4 people and a lot of cargo, this is not your car.

Exterior styling

I actually like it, but it is not flashy. If you want flashy, this is not your car.
