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

Review

Excellent car, with great interior space, at least in front, and high assembly and materials quality. Handles well; complaints about soft ride come from those who don't make long trips on American roads , which are not maintained to European standards and tolerances. Standard stereo with CD is more than adequate.

Best Features

Engine performance, unpretentious design, assembly and materials quality that approach BMW levels. Torquey 5th gear performance on the open road.

Worst Features

5 speed manual transmission is the weakest link; it's possible to beat the syncromesh with fast shifts between first and second. Movement could be more direct and more precise; clutch travel could be shorter.
