The turbo is worth it.

2001 Volkswagen Golf GLS 1.8T 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Review
This car is really great to drive- especially when passing people. The turbo makes the car fun, but the interior layout (the back seats fold down flat to double trunk space) makes it practical. The back seat doesn't have a lot of leg room, but for a semi-compact car it's not bad. I've heard several people complain of the cloth seats pilling, but I haven't really had any problems. My dealership dealt w/the problems I've had (a radio that made the alarm randomly go off & a bad heated mirror) quickly & w/o any hassles. The factory cd changer is ridiculous. It's much cheaper & as simple to buy from somewhere else & either do it yourself, or get it installed.
Favorite Features
The turbo. The color of the dash lights (blue & red - modeled after airport runway lighting). Accelerates without any lag or difficulty.
Suggested Improvements
Soft suspension. Power seats-especially since everything else in the car is power. Instead, there's a lever to crank the seat higher or lower, a knob (in an awkward location) to adjust the angle of the back of the seat, & a handle to move the seat forward/backward.
