- Acceleration, comfort, heated seats, FUN to drive
- Fuel economy, repair cost, uses premium gas
Purchased As Used
For a Tennessee Volunteer, this is THE car to have - it's already UT Orange! Zippy, fun to drive, scare the bejeesus out of my passenger, back seats a bit small but ok for a small car, hatchback really convenient. Repairs could be costly, bought a 2yr repair warranty, haven't needed it yet, after 1/2 year of owning it. Bought car used, traded in a white 2008 VW GTI 6-spd manual, which was also wicked fast. I switch between mid-grade to premium gas, mfr says use premium, it runs better on hi-test. Also recommends using synthetic oil, which is COSTLY at oil change time....read morehide

- GREAT fuel economy!MUCH roomier on the inside than what the eye can see outside COMFORTABLE! FASSST!
- i-POD connection INSIDE glove compartment/poor SOUND system
LOOKS SUPER!!Love the orange..Overall I'm fascinated with my Farenheit! Not too girly Not too manly!!!
ROOMY/COMFORTABLE-I always underestimate the possibilities of how roomy it is(3 in the back seat fit comfortably)and have room to fit 4 folding chairs and groceries in the hatch!!!
FAST- The shifting is extremely smooth.. not wasting a second of torque nor stability.The launch mode patiently waits 'till you get your foot of the brake,without fuss.. and then YOUR OFF!!! .I've always had fast cars(t-bird,vette) ...I traded in my 350Z and thought I was going to miss the power...but that's before I truly got to know all the Farenheit has to offer.
SAFE-Of course! Safer than most sports cars,saving $$$ on insurance,
FUEL EFFECIENT- the biggest budget breaker... GAS,26-40 MPG!!!...read morehide

- Great acceleration, the Orange is awesome with 18inch wheels....nice comfort leather seats
- I cannot afford two
Mustang V8 convertible, RX-8 were driven.......but discarded as options as soon as I floored the car @ 70 and saw it accelerate hard up to 85 in no time....
I hope I don't get tickets being Orange!

Buy it again= 100% It comes across as a very balanced, great handling , and intuitive sports car costing thousands more. Surprising !

- Acceleration, Comfy Interior, Ride, Color, Sport mode, Launch Control, Safety Features
- Impossible to drive speed limit.
I traded in my scion tc for this car and its no competition. When I went into the dealership I already had the GTI in mind, but I didnt like the fahrenheit from what I saw online. But once you see it in person, you cant take your eyes off of it. It has everything you could want standard, at least for a simple guy like me. Heated leather, Auto, Sunroof, 8 airbags, 6 disc in dash. If it doesnt get you with looks, just a test drive and youll love it. Ask if you can test out the launch control, a fun little feature on all 07 VW's. I love this car....read morehide
