Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I have not had this car for very long, but I really like it so far! I needed a car that would get me to and from work every day without being a gas guzzler, but would not be boring to drive, as my wife and I often go on road trips to visit her family across the state. After looking into several cars in this price range, we decided on the 2012 GLI because of two main factors: the sporty look of this car, and Volkswagen's great reputation.
Not only is the fuel economy just as good as my old Toyota, my GLI has way more giddyup, making it more fun to drive. I opted for the manual transmission to get a lower price than the automatic version would have been. When I told my wife how awesome it was to drive this car, she became instantly jealous because she doesn't know how to drive a stick.
So, what's the verdict? The car just feels sporty. Sitting in traffic on my way to work feels a lot less lame now that I have so many options when it comes to entertainment with the built-in stereo system. I was also to ditch my annoying in-ear Bluetooth device because the car came with one built in. Now I can make hands-free phones calls through my stereo speakers. They even sound better than my old setup!
My only complaint isn't really about the car, but the dealer. They didn't have any of the color I wanted in stock (Tornado Red). I'm getting used to the gray color though. Overall, I'm pretty happy with this car!
