Volkswagen Golf GTi: Is it a good first car?

I'm 17 looking for my first car and am looking into getting a Golf GTI Mk 6 DSG (2009-2013). Will this car be reliable first car or will it be prone to issues?

If it’s in good condition, hasn’t done a heap of kilometres, and has a documented history of servicing it should be a good first car. It’s important to remember that VW had lots of rouble with the DSG gearbox in that period, so check with the vendor to see if any work ha been done on the gearbox.
