Vehicle2001 Volkswagen GTI GLS 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
ReviewBought 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
