2004 Volkswagen GTI User Reviews
- $4,674 - $5,537
- No trim specified for this review
The only weekness of this car is the slow start from a stop -- I'm talking about the manual transmission version -- the automatic transmission version certainly does not have this problem.
I like to start with low RPM -- around 1000RPM -- the engine is pretty weak in this range. At 1800RPM everything is fine -- if you start in this range you get a dramatic start. The VR6 version does not have this problem. Driving on a Highway with this car is great -- great power at 2000RPM -- this is 5th gear at 80miles/hour -- no need to downshift for passing.
