1996 Volkswagen GTI 2dr Hatchback

Review

This is my second VW. I have owned it for it's entire life and have only had minor problems with it, most of which were covered under the warranty. The one disappointment was the radio. I liked the security feature it had, but I had to have it replaced three times. Several VW dealerships I spoke to knew this radio was a lemon, but could offer me only expensive alternatives. I finally replaced it with an aftermarket in dash CD player which is not so great, but it works and it's loud. On the whole, I am happy with my car and I highly recommend VWs.

Best Features

Working wipers (a novelty for me). The GTI's design. It's fun to drive. Even the smaller engine is a blast on the highway.

Worst Features

Better customer service for bad or poorly designed parts. More convience features -- like cup holders that actually can fit something in them, a light in the hatch, and a glove compartment.
