Vehicle2003 Volkswagen GTI 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
ReviewThe GTI is close to being very good...it mainly needs a suspension that can live up to expectations. It is too mushy to be any fun. The only other thing would be a 4 door GTI. The downside to VW is the dealerships and VWoA. The simple truth is they dont stand behind there cars and unless its a warranty repair you would be very well served to find a competant local shop and NEVER go to the dealerships. 2001 to 2003 models have severe coil pack failures and my car is one of 14 at the dealership with a failed ignition coil and it will be several weeks before I get a replacement. Pathetic!
Best Features1.8T and the brakes!! I love the overall design of the car as its still small enough to be fun to drive but with the seats down you can fit an AMAZING amount of stuff in it.
Worst FeaturesThe dealers/VWoA need to wake up. Tighten up the suspension or at least offer a real sports suspension as an option.
