2011 GTI - Driving around NoVA
Driving to work in my new 2011 GTI. I noticed from the camera's viewing
angle, it looks like I'm a lot closer to the cars in front of me than I
really am. I'll find a new mount for my phone or my camera soon enough.
Not pushing it too hard right now, only have 2500 miles on it.
Plenty of vids to come. I plan on going stage 2 with CAI and downpipe in
about a year or so.

http://www.Facebook.com/2Redline For years, Volkswagen's GTI seemed to sit
on an un-touchable perch atop most of its direct rivals. Although it lacked
the raw power figures for bragging rights, no other competitor could touch
the VW for its unbeatable combination of sporty performance and everyday
livability. With strong entries from Ford, Honda, Subaru, and Mazda does
the GTI still have what it takes to be considered a class leader? Let's

I was taught to drive manual in my friend's 2004 Mustang GT about 9 months ago so you

GTI - 2011, MKVI, Autobahn Edition
Update 10/05/2011: A person asked me how I felt about my GTI now that I'm
coming up to a full year of ownership. The following was my response to the
You are correct, I'm coming up on my first year of ownership of my GTI and
I'd be happy to give you my impressions to this point. I've put
approximately 12.5k miles on the car and I've driven it in rain, snow,
excruciating Summer heat, several rounds of autocross and everything in
between. In a nutshell, I still love this car.
First and foremost, I've had zero mechanical problems with my GTI. Not even
the tiniest of issues to report. Hence, I can only conclude from my
experience that the build quality of my GTI is absolutely top notch. I took
the car in for a gratis 6k inspection and 10k servicing and this went
without a hitch. There was a factory software recall which was applied by
the dealer to my GTI which fixed a problem with the keyless entry system
but I'd never experienced the rectified problem in the first place.
My GTI appears to drive today with the same exhilarating quickness as it
did the day I took delivery. The car still handles with a sublime tightness
without a hint of body roll but it also still has the same relatively stiff
suspension to remind you when going over bumps and potholes too. The turbo still has the same explosive power
and I've made very good use of it when driving autocross. The car really
behaves very differently with the traction control disabled (the throttle
response in particular gets much quicker) and I've had a great deal of fun
racing around the cones during competitive events. The GTI is made to be
driven aggressively and this is when the car really shines.
I put Winter wheels (16" alloys with snow tires) on the car last year and
I'll do the same again this year. With the snow tires, the GTI handles more
or less like any other front wheel drive car except for the fact that you
have to attenuate the power a little more carefully when driving in snow.
You can spin your wheels in wet (or dry) conditions somewhat effortlessly
and I'm pretty mindful of that now. Ground clearance is really the only
concern when dealing with the white stuff but I haven't gotten stuck as of
Functionally, the GTI is deceptively large. I can easily fit four adults in
the car without compromise...I'm sure the 2-door model feels different in
this regard. The hatchback and folding rear seats also make for a
surprising amount of cargo space when it's required. Gas mileage around the
city is not that great...maybe 18-20 mpg in my experience. Conversely,
mileage on the highway is astoundingly good...well over 30 mpg. My record
is 36 mpg on a 200 mile drive. All in all, the GTI is amazingly useful in
most real-world situations.
Perhaps the only thing I thing I can point to and wish VW had done better
is the NS-315 navigation/media unit. Everything works fine but I find the
interface a little cumbersome in design and implementation....maybe VW
should have hired Apple to write the car's software because I think it
could have been done better.
All in all, this is one of the best cars I've ever owned and I've had quite
a few. I do miss some of the luxuries of my previous cars, like automatic
climate control but those amenities would ruin the overall theme of the
GTI: fast, fun, high-quality but spartan....very German at it's core. For
the money, I can't see how you can get much more quality & bang for your
buck. While cars like the Mazda 3 Speed are technically faster, they also seriously lack the quality
and refinement of the GTI. To summarize: One year later and this car still
gets 5/5 stars from me...I only wish I could give it six out of five. :)
