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


I've had this car for over 2 years. The windows have fallen inside the door several times. Though Volkswagen did admit that it was a huge defect on these vehicles, they are replacing all window mechanisms with a complete newly designed piece. It's been now almost a year and the windows work perfectly. Other than that I have no complaints. I love driving the car and am very pleased with the smooth drive. 150 hourses can really give you some serious G-Force! Oh, and one last thing... This car has always made head turns since the first day a owned it. It's sleek European design definitely stands out within the rest.

Best Features

Great acceleration and safe handling at high speeds and curves. Volkswagen has a heavy chassis, which makes the car feel sturdy and strong from the moment you put your foot in the car. I Love the tremendous space I get when I lower the rear seats. You can fit most anything back there!

Worst Features

-Better gas mielage and more power. -Would love to see a Hybrid version.
