2002 Volkswagen GTI VR6 2dr Hatchback (2.8L 6cyl 5M)

Review

My husband has always loved Volkswagen, until I bought him his first american version. Major problems began at 3K miles and have continued ever since. Replaced all ignition coils (some of them twice) all before the recall, replaced secondary air pump 5 times in the last two years with intervals of 11, 9, 6, and 3 months apart, window clip recall, monsoon CD broken, seat handles break off, turn signal indicator continually falls out. $28,000 for a true lemon.

Best Features

Horsepower, when car is functioning.

Worst Features

Volkswagen has taken too many shortcuts, plastic parts, cheap labor, buying parts from so many manufacturers without accountability and not trying to compensate with service, not standing behind product.
