2002 Volkswagen GTI 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Review
The GTi is the best car ever. My aunt's BMW 325i doesn't even come close....it is way to numb and uninvolving, unlike my GTi, which begs to be tossed around corners, and feels like an part of yourself when you get into driving it. Build quality inside and out is perfect, and is supposedly better if the car is from Germany (Mine is Brazilian, although the drivetrain is from Germany). The engine is excellent; the turbo comes on just below 2000 RPM, which makes for quite a rush. The car gets very good mileage considering its power output. The suspension is a bit soft for my tastes, but I don't have the 17" wheels. Remember, the GTi is also veddy practical....5 adults and stuff, no prob.
Favorite Features
Very good visibility, exterior styling, interior layout, interior materials (flawless), tiptronic tranny, the car key, powerful headlights, red and blue interior lights, powerful stereo, price/value ratio, and, of course, IT'S GERMAN!
Suggested Improvements
The suspension could stand to be firmer, cupholders block stereo volume knob when in use.
