Poor man's BMW
By bigerock on
Vehicle2002 Volkswagen GTI 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
ReviewI teetered back and forth between the
BMW Z3, the AUDI TT, and others. I was
going to put my money on the BMW, that
is, until I drove this little number. I
went to the dealership for a test
drive, and went home with it that day.
This car is so fun to drive. Handles
very tight. It's definitely a German
car. It performs almost everything you
ask of it. Yeah, it's small, but I feel
safe. It's got 6 airbags for gosh sake.
The monsoon (upgraded) stereo blows. If
you like listening to music, and
consider yourself an audiophile, you're
gonna have to get an aftermarket
system. This car can also be
electronically tuned to gain around 40
more horses and 70 more lb-ft of
torque. That's a TON!
Best FeaturesSpeed, handling, comfort, sunroof, size, over-all fun to drive.
Worst FeaturesThe cupholder is in THE WORST place. It blocks your controls to your stereo. The 'Monsoon' stereo blows. Don't belive the hype. Any reviewer who says otherwise must hate music. Seats should have power controls. Should have 4 doors. Clutch throw distance is WAY long, and too tight.
