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

Review

Bought mine new in 07/2001. Added the 17" rims and sport suspension - resulting in absolutely amazing handling. Only 2 warranty items - driver side window regulator (common problem) and an ignition coil blew (apparently a known issue and now replaced with a new design). The dealership replaced both window regulators with new metal ones and both ignition coils with the newly re- designed one. After 2-1/2 years the occasional odd little interior creaks are a bit annoying. Overall I'm very pleased with this wicked little speed demon. The GTI is a fantastic vehicle and is highly recommended!

Best Features

- excellent power/weight ratio - excellent handling (with the 17" & sport suspension) - excellent flip-up seats for easy backseat access - fantastic package overall

Worst Features

- warranty - 2yr/40K km stinks - better seat design - long trips kill my back and why can't I recline the stupid things?! - tighten things better at the factory so they don't creak later in life
