114k and still running strong (sort of!)

1997 Volkswagen GTI 2dr Hatchback
Review
I have had this car for a little over three years and I have put close to 70K on it since then. I had to get a new cat back exhaust around 50K. The only thing since then was a timing belt, tune up, and wheel bearings at 112K. My latest problem and the biggest so far is that my reverse is totally shot! I can't complain too much about the car I have been pretty rough with it over the past three years and it has held up pretty good. I just wish it had more power!!!
Favorite Features
Handling, german/styling and engineering, fun and compact!
Suggested Improvements
Needs more power. The front cupholders are pathedic. The rubber door moldings are mounted with inferior adhesive. Stock radio should have more power. Doors like to close on you. The door locks and hatch lock like to freeze and jam up. The alarm system is a little unstable.
