2004 Volkswagen GTI
|Amazing speed & handling, love it||Storage is completely lacking - none in doors, very little in console|
|Love the acceleration, manuerability when passing||It has rear seats but they are not useable.|
|Drivability - turning radius, quiet ride, handling||Stereo system is disappointing - especially considering its premium|
|Steering wheel because it feels and looks top notch||Headlights: they are reflectors. at least use projectors.|
|Handling and stability in all conditions, fun to drive||Brakes feel mushy; they should feel sporty|
|Vehicle exterior - excellent styling without being overly flashy.||Entry doors cannot lock when car is warming up!|
|Engine and transmission - very smooth, very powerful, very economical||Park position requires use of brake to avoid movement of car|
|Performance - the car has great acceleration||The ride is a little on the stiff side.|
|I like the smoothness of the gear shift and ease of clutch operation||Power seats/memory - really miss not having this with 2 drivers|
|Handling - so much fun to drive - so peppy & powerful||Navigation system is rudimentary. after market gps is much better|
