Driving

Great fun to drive, handles well.

Performance

4 out of 5

Don't expect good fuel consumption - it is a GTi!

Reliability

3 out of 5

Mechanically good, but have had a whole heap of electrical problems and other niggles that when speaking to other VW drivers they have experienced. Great when under warranty as VW just replace problem, but never repair.

Gets some admiring looks and like the fact that it is quite rare.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Very comfortable, but quite harsh ride at times due to low profiles and sporty nature of car. Wouldn't suit tall dirver, but perfect for me.
