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

Review

I bought this car after considering the Vibe, Matrix, and protege-5. They all cost about the same if you add the options needed to bring them up to the GTI standard equipment. This car replaced a 95 Subaru Impreza 2.2 wagon. The interior of the GTI is great, I wanted leather but the local dealers didn't have it with the luxury package so I went with the moon roof and monsoon instead. I've had one big problem that seems like a common one for the GTI/Golf/Jetta/Beetle family...The passenger window supports broke and the window fell into the door frame. It took the dealer 3 days to fix this since they didn't have the parts.

Favorite Features

Interior look and feel, power, cargo space, long list of standard features.

Suggested Improvements

Sun visors are too short and don't offer any protection from the side window. The cup holders as others have noted. Slow process to lower the back seats. Stronger window supports. Tighter handleing!
