I owned the 2011 GTI. It was a fantastic car. Needed no repairs in the 18 months I owned before I had to sell for relocation. I would have gladly kept it.
Sporty. DSG transmission was fantastic. In the past few years I've owned Audi B5 A4, E39 540i, Honda AP2 S2000, and now Merc W204 C220 Cdi, and the GTi is as enjoyable as any of them. I'm also not biased against Hyundais, having owned a Scoupe Turbo back in the day, but the GTi is truly the best all around car a manufacturer can produce.
If you really want a reliable car with a great warranty there's always a corolla ;)
was gonna say a6
I think the GTI works rather well with older folk. As long as you get it with the more refined choices (no goofy wheels, no bright colors), it doesn't really have any boy-racer look to it. The 4-door GTI is one of my favorite car models across generations...I'm so glad they made the 4-door available in the US in the recent generations.
My observation on VW maintenance and reliability is that they can be very reliable, but they have tight tolerances and are not forgiving. If you are the kind of person who lets the routine maintenance and oil changes lapse until you are long overdue (or something goes wrong), the VWs will not be happy. If you know that you are the kind of person who stays on top of routine and preventative maintenance, then you will be fine; if not, get an asian car.
