GTI hard to beat in it's class!
By Colby on
2000 Volkswagen GTI GLS 1.8T Turbo 2dr Hatchback
Basically flawless. What a great
little car with surprising amount of
room. Amazes others with it's quality
feel and performance. Like so many of
the car mags have said, "feels like a
car costing $10,000 more." and "rivals
BMW for it's fit and finish."
Embarrasses it's competition for
safety, amenities, fit and finish,
standard equipment, and the like. The
VW GTI is simply hard to beat.
Wonderful 1.8T engine.
What a gem, smooth power just above
idle to the redline. No waiting
for the power to build like in the
GTI's competition, and none of the
lawnmower like thrashing noises of
those Japanese cars either.
Oh, and of course the blue/red interior
Should come with higher performance
tires for the car that defined the
segment. Brake pads that produce less
brake dust. Car is vault like quiet
except the door seals tend to squeak
from time to time, especially when
cold. Different door seals would cure
that tiny annoyance.
