DO NOT BUY THIS CAR

Vehicle2002 Volkswagen GTI 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
ReviewThis car is the worse investment I have ever made. Bought it used in '05 with 18,000 miles on it for $18,500 and have put over $9,000 in it on maintenance. Currently it does not run because the car leaks water very badly through the ceiling. I had to replace both axels, the clutch after about 2,000 miles in my ownership, i had suspension problems, turbo/exhaust problems, leaking all over the ceiling. About 20 different hoses and gauges replaced, no exaggeration. It was on 2010's Consumer Reports worse car list. Timing belt was replaced a lot sooner than is should be replaced because of issues, the Catalytic Converter was replaced, all of this because of the cars build quality.
Best FeaturesI have no favorite features. This car is worth about $5,000 dollars now and I put about $9,000 in repairs and spent $18,500 for it. So you do the math.
Worst FeaturesEverything needs to be improved. I feel like the Germans were short on money and decided to start putting toy parts in the cars.
