Although just by looking at this year's VW GTI most people would not know how enjoyable this car really is. I recently purchased the Autobahn PZEV model and have been very pleased overall. I have always loved turbocharged vehicles and I love feeling the excitement as the torque kicks in and pushes me to the back of my seat. That feeling is amazing to me, and this car gives me the satisfaction of having just enough horsepower and torque to please me with a daily driver. Although this car is probably not something you'd want to put up against a beastly powerful competitor with 400 hp, this car has a gentle nature about the power it provides. It gives me the power I want, when I need it. The GTI is full of safety components from air bags all around to a monitor for the tire pressure and adjustable safety belts. While the handling can't beat the Mazda I used to have, the six-speed manual transmission makes me feel better about the GTI and I'm really enjoying it. It is a stylish car, reasonably good on gas mileage, and while it doesn't have as much cargo space as I would like, it is a comfortable car to drive in for long distances and daily commutes to work. Inside the car, I have become rather attached to the touchscreen stereo system that also includes an in-dash CD-changer. I plan to have this car for years to come, and overall I am very happy with my choice. After going to many dealers and considering many other vehicles, this GTI definitely suits me well.
