2002 Volkswagen GTI 337 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

An awesome back-to basics, true GTI.
Works as weekend autocross track day
car (have set several FTD's over cars
with nearly twice the HP), babyhauler
(pretty roomy ofr it exterior size),
and everday commuter. Comfy seat,
decent mileage. Incredible brakes,
excellent handling, very good power
(extremely flexible motor). A ball to
drive, anywhere.

2002 Volkswagen GTI 337 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

9000 miles, not a single problem.
This special edition is powerful, and
extremely fun to drive. This is how all
of those people who modify their
cars wish their end result was half
as nice as this. This car is well
designed. It makes you feel as
though you own/drive a more
expensive car. The euro design is
very refreshing, considering all of the
poor taste -japanese cars out there
now.


Best Features

Brakes from the Audi TT. Turbo. 18" BBS Lightweight wheels. Michelin Pilot Sport Tires. Recaro Seats. Styling. 6-speed Enough said.


Worst Features

Add a Short throw shifter. Pour in some Mobil 1 5w40 after 4k miles. Enjoy!

2002 Volkswagen GTI 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

I'm very satisfied about my GTI 1.8T
2002! Fun to drive, but too much rattle
sound who comes from averywhere!.... I
think volks should think to upgrade HP
in his 1.8T to 225hp minimum! (in
competition with subaru 2.5 RS)... The
thing i more like in my GTI 1.8T is
high torque when you push it'em over
5500 RPM!!! Whatta feeling!!


Best Features

TURBO!...:) Sport seat, precison or the shifter, heated seat, heated mirror ASL system (great in sport driving to keep control)

Review

I purchased my GTI new just over a
year ago and was extremely happy with
it for about 3 months and then I
started getting rattles in the dash
that the dealer has been unable to get
fix, their attitude is, what did you
expect... and now I am getting more
rattles in the door panels. The
quality just isn't what it should be.

This is my 5th VW, but unfortunately
it will be my last.


Best Features

Zippy engine good handling


Worst Features

VW must improve quality if they expect to move up market.
