33 and have had some sweet cars almost all costing twice the amount of the GTI. Best bang for your buck no doubt.

Over 40 here, traded my subaru family hauler for the GTI and never looked back. My wife loves the refined ride, luxury interior and heated seats. My toddler can't live without Radio Disney on the free Sirius subscription.

It is a great car for cruising with the family or driving it harder when on your own!!

We rarely take the family van anywhere - we all go to the GTI first.

DO IT.

47 (though I don't look like it) with a wife and twin soon to be nine year old boys.

The car is roomy, economical, relatively inexpensive & a lot of fun!

Good to see some older guys on here. I'm 30 and I thought I was going to be towards the end of the spectrum, but I guess not

I'm 61. Always liked small cars with high rev engines. Love the practicality and performance, sound system, high end interior. I could go on and on! I'm old.

Really? You think more so than Buick or Toyota? I can't see it.

If I recall correctly there are.


I'm 37 and my younger friends say I can't keep the GTI past 40.
