2001 Volkswagen GTI GLX VR6 2dr Hatchback (2.8L 6cyl 5M)
Review
Like the title says, I absolutely love the car, but there have just been too many reliability issues. It fits my needs perfectly -- it's sporty, practical, and luxurious all at once. In the GLX level, it feels like an Audi hatchback would feel if they sold one in the U.S. But in the two years I have owned it, I have had to have the driver's side airbag replaced, the airbag wiring harness replaced, the driver's side door realigned twice, a speaker replaced twice, the driver's side window regulator replaced twice, and the engine mass air flow sensor replaced.
Favorite Features
The engine! Lots of torque, and smooth. Only BMW makes a nicer six-cylinder engine. The interior feels like it belongs in an Audi.
Suggested Improvements
BUILD QUALITY! Shifter is a little notchy, handling is a little soft. The rear seats are a major pain in the rear to fold down.
