2002 Volkswagen GTI 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Review
I've had my 2002 GTI just over 5 months now and must say I'm impressed. The only "problem" I have is the left tie rod popping as descibed by Russell. This car feels like a much more expensive car. I owned an Infiniti G20 before the GTI and must say the VW seems to be built just as well. We'll see how the GTI holds up over time. My G20 was still solid (no squeaks) after 125K miles. The power of the 1.8T engine is unbelievable. It's nice not to have to downshift to get in the power range - just step on it and it goes...FAST!
Favorite Features
heated seats/mirrors, one-touch windows, dial-a-sunroof, Monsoon sound system, cargo space, full-size spare, hopped-up civics in rear-view mirror
Suggested Improvements
reduce significant turbo noise (wouldn't want to give up power though), lower ride height for even better cornering
