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

Review

I bought this car new in late 2001 as a 2002 model. This was my second GTI, the first a 1985 built in Westmoreland PA. I bought it to rekindle some memories of my youth I suppose, and was a wonderful toy! It was black, tan leather, 5 speed stick, sunroof, monsoon sound system, 17 alloys! I babied this car and only drove it on the weekends, and it was a blast. There were some recalls, the coils and the power window lifters, but all handled under warranty.

Best Features

Speed, handling, albeit some torque steer, pulled nicely from 1st gear to 5th. Spin the wheels. Nothing better than a sunny day, and a pack of GTI's racing through the twisties!

Worst Features

Horrible tan leather, hard to keep clean, and of poor quality. If I did it again I would buy black!
