2001 Volkswagen GTI GLS 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


I'll make this short. This is the best all-around car you will find. The car is fun as hell to drive, looks good, is practical (as most hatchbacks are), is designed intelligently (for the most part) and the build quality is great. you wont get this much car for this little money anywhere else. forget what you think you should be driving (especially inefficient SUVs), and go to a dealer and take a test drive. Power is more than sufficient. Handling is good for all but the most performance minded. My only complaint is that some dealers are genuine jerks. Reydel VW in Edison NJ is quite good.

Best Features

Looks, FUN TO DRIVE, dashboard lights, interior design/layout, hatchback, price (for the amount you get), turbo, isnt a gas-guzzler (though isnt that frugal either)

Worst Features

move the cup holders from the top of the center dash console. the radio, lighter and shifter are right below them, if anything spills). wheel for adjusting the seat angle is ok, not terrible, but could be better. gas mileage perhaps?
