Why the 2008 Volkswagen GTI?

Powertrain performance

The Mk. V GTI is a very fun car to drive. It strike an excellent balance of speed, handling, and practicality.

Warranty, maintenance cost

I purchased my 2008 VW GTI 12 months ago and have already spent over $4000 on repairs. The costs are so astronomical and frequent that I refuse to ever buy a Volkswagen the rest of my life.

Reliability & durability

The 2008 VW GTI is a car that you can't depend on. It has tons of issues that affect a high percentage of owners, which include: Diverter valve failure PCV faliure Cam wear Fuel pump failure Air conditioning failure Misfires Carbon build up Avoid this car at all costs. Don't make the same mistake I did.
