Fahrvergnügen is German for "driving pleasure" and the VW GTI embodies this sentiment. It corners well, the manual transmission is smooth, and the acceleration is punchy even on the highway. This car fits like a glove driving around the city and takes curves like a champ on those winding California backroads. All this in a hatchback package that allows for a surprising amount of storage space when the rear seats are folded down. The hill assist feature in this model helps driving in hilly San Francisco easier, but you MUST BE COMFORTABLE DRIVING A STICK-SHIFT if renting this car. The car is equipped with a subscription of SiriusXM and full Bluetooth capability. The car is also equipped with FasTrak, so you can breeze right through at all Bay Area Bridges. Please note: * The car should have a full tank of gas. Please return it FULL (Premium only). If the gas tank is NOT full at the start of your trip, please notify me. The nearest gas station is at Turk & Franklin. ** To put the car in REVERSE, you need to press down on the gear knob and shift left and up. ***The driver's side window switch is a bit sticky -- to put window up, please flick switch towards you while applying downward pressure.
