Vehicle
2001 Volkswagen GTI GLS 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Review
Lets see, where to begin. Well, firstly, i bought the car used with 4500 miles on it ( and its 2 years old ) "issues" were the rubber interior door drivers handle was peeling ( not warranteed ), the passenger seat release was broken ( warrantee ). I have owed subaru, pontiacx2, nissanx2 and finally this VW. Since owning the VW for just around 3 months, it is my most favorite vehicle of all of ones i have owned (*pleasantly surprised*) A friend, VW owner x3 now, said dont expect japanese reliability but german character ( handling / feel ) I will have to see how the reliability is after awhile.
Favorite Features
Very spirited feel (feels faster than the 8.5sec 0-60), comfortable seats, very good visibility, tight interior/material quality, good mpg [32.8ave mpg for 1000+mile trip last weekend, urm, cruising @ 82mph freeway], sunroof operation, 1 touch up/down BOTH windows, guage colors
Suggested Improvements
interior warantee ( fixed for newer ones?), turbo boost meter ;)
