2002 GTI bought in Nov 01. Very excited
to get this car. Definately fun to
drive, 5 speed, 1.8T, sweeeet. 25000
miles on my Indigo Blue baby.
Irritating things: Can't keep Indigo
clean! Bird poop damages paint, cheap
rubber coating on interior door handles
peeling, rear speaker quit, center
console latch broke, louvre under
passenger headlight fell out, headlight
replaced, replaced each window
regulator at least three times, check
engine light four times. By now I've
owned the car 2 1/2 years and have had
it at the dealer at least 10 times for
problems above. All relatively minor
problems but what a pain in the keester.
Car hauls ash! Still fun to drive.
Sunroof. Reasonable gas mileage.
Awesome looks. Despite all problems two
different dealers fixed/refixed
everything under warranty and were
Quality issues. Think I may have to go
with a Japanese hybrid.
