I just wish the test GTI's reliability was better. The car performed admirably until the last day, when the radiator fan suddenly stopped working in stop-and-go traffic on the freeway. With only 2,000 miles on it, the GTI had to be limped off on an exit ramp. The radiator was cooled with splashes of cold water so the car could get to a dealership for repair. This is not the kind of thing to have happen with a high-running, turbo engine.
If VW is serious about building consumer confidence in their new models, they should bring back their 100,000 mile drivetrain warranty they had in 2000. Especially since Hyundai / Kia, GM, Mitsubishi, and Suzuki all currently offer such a warranty.

Leave it to a woman car reviewer to complain about the clutch pedal being too heavy.
