I am hoping the GTI seats become an option in the TDI Golf and Jetta Sportswagen.

A few points, Chen. First, this is an after-market product which will fit in the dash of a VW Golf... but you would probably have to remove something else, like maybe the AM-FM-CD player.
Second, the screen size is pretty small for DVD playback, so I don't think this is a very useful feature.
Third, if you buy a Garmin or some other GPS navigation system, you can upgrade easily without tearing into your dashboard again. The product you've linked to could, conceivably, reduce the resale value of your car if it cannot be easily updated with new street and road information. And of course depending on how professionally it is mounted and what has to be removed to make room for it.

Can anyone provide me with the money factor and residual for this car?

#210 of 224 golf 2.5 or the gti
Aug 12, 2010 (3:59 pm)
I initially wanted the 2010 golf 2.5 and think I could be happy with it but it does not come with a 6 cd changer or navigation options. I spend a lot of time in my car so music is important to me. (I do not want the tdi because I don't want diesel). I am also considering the gti. I love the power behind the turbo but I am a little concerned about the price/value, the maintanence and reliability. Any thoughts or suggestions from anyone??

Given that HPFP failures are common in the VA's Andalusia BMW's how can one run them "forever" . VW always claims. Contaminated fuel with these fuel system failures so warranty doesn't cover. Owner out 6,000-8,000
Dollars own $$$.
The failures are wide spread.

I really like the interior of the 2010 Golf, especially in the TDI.
It is somewhat upscale without being pretentious.

The 2011 Golf is just as good. On the other hand, the new 2011 Jettas have been "decontented" -- the MSRP has been cut by cheapening the suspension and the brake system. The Jetta now returns to the torsion beam rear suspension, same as it had until 2005, and the base models now have rear drum brakes.
So if a fully independent suspension is important to you, and four-wheel disk brakes, then go with one of the Golf models.

To me the most ridiculous aspect of the 2011 Jetta is bringing back the 2.0, 8 valve 115 HP engine in order to advertise a lower price for the base model. What a joke, my kid has essentially that same engine in his 1996 Jetta.
Even if the other aspects turned out to be okay with me, there would still be no acceptable Jetta for me, were I in the market. I am not about to buy the 2.slow in a (I assume) ~3000 pound car. But going to the higher trim levels would mean having vinyl foisted on me, I don't happen to like vinyl/"leatherette" (or leather).
Oh, the Jetta sportwagen might be an option, as that is unchanged from the 2010 model, I think.
