That bit you always heard about not judging a book by its cover? It's good advice. Case in point: the 2011 Volkswagen GTI you see here. That's right, the sensible-looking four-door family car in Carbon Steel Grey. The one that just blew past you like a Fourth of July bottle rocket.
2010 Volkswagen GTI Front Three Quarter
The Mark VI Volkswagen GTI impressed us at Automobile Magazine enough to win Automobile of the Year back in 2010, so it’s no use claiming it’s not a good car. But as its rivals gain on it with more horsepower and trick features, it might need to pump itself up to better compete.
CHP Pulling Lambo Over
You might peg a high-dollar, super-fast sports car as the most ticketed vehicle in the U.S., but a recent study conducted by Quality Planning, a company specializing in analytics that works with insurance companies, shows that’s not always the case. Posted in a slideshow on CNBC, Quality Planning’s top ten most ticketed cars list had a few interesting surprises this year.
VW Golf24 Front Three Quarter
It was thirty five years ago, this year that Volkswagen released the first Golf GTI. It was small, lightweight, quick and nimble; not to mention it was the car that singlehandedly created the hot hatch segment in the market. In celebration of the GTI’s 35th year on the market, Volkswagen has taken to showing off some special editions of the GTI, including convertibles at its Wörthersee festival. Well, the festivities aren’t over because today VW announced it was going to field a special edition of the Golf GTI at this weekend’s 24-Hours at the Nürburgring
Volkswagen Gti Cabrio Concept Side Shot
We recently reported on the Volkswagen Golf R cabrio concept revealed at last week’s Wörthersee festival in Austria, but that wasn't the only drop-top concept V-Dub dropped at the fanfest. The company also showed off a Golf GTI Cabrio concept, giving fans another reason to celebrate the GTI’s 35th anniversary.

Recall Date
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2010-2014 Volkswagen CC, and Passat, 2010-2013 Eos, 2011-2014 Golf, GTI, Jetta, and Tiguan, and 2012-2014 Jetta Sportwagen vehicles. In the affected vehicles, debris may contaminate the air bag clock spring, a spiral wound, flat cable that keeps the air bag powered while the steering wheel is being turned. This contamination may tear the cable and result in a loss of electrical connection to the driver's frontal air bag.
A loss of electrical connection to the driver's frontal air bag will prevent the air bag from deploying in the event of a vehicle crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will install a protective cover over the steering wheel clock spring if the air bag light is off. If the airbag light is on and the steering wheel clock spring requires replacement, dealers will install a new steering wheel clock spring. These repairs will be performed free of charge. Interim notices were mailed to owners on September 25, 2015. Owners will receive a second notice on January 15, 2016. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-822-8987.
