2003 Volkswagen GTI 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

I had the Jetta 2.0L in 2000, then the 2001 4dr Golf 1.8T, and now thw 2003 Golf GTI 1.8T. The quality of these cars in excellent. There are no other cars in this class or price range that have this kind of durability and safety.


Best Features

My favorite feature is the engine. The 1.8T is a great engine. I tis very smooth and gives a lot of power.


Worst Features

The front seats tend to make noise.I have had this with all 3 VW's and it seems to be par for the course. One Improvement that stands out is that they should have a 4dr GTI with the 1.8T and the 6cyl. I prefer a 4dr, but the good engines are only offered in the coupe.

2003 Volkswagen GTI 20th Anniversary Edition 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

I am really impressed with this vehicle. It is a great combination of perfomance/ style/ and reliability/ and Cost. Im an Automotive Engineer and a tough customer :-) Although North America does not have the Haldex AWD coupling (which my company makes) This car performs great with the stability control option. My decision was down to the GTI and the Mini S. I chose the GTI because of engine performance and the 20th annv. package is just cool!


Best Features

The power plant baby + 18"wheels/tires!


Worst Features

Add the Haldex AWD. http://www.haldextraction.com Steering wheelcontrols for radio
