2003 Volkswagen GTI 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Bought my 03 silver 1.8T GTI for $14000 with just 4000 mi on it. This was a VW Corporate car.I've had no problems at all, recently rolling over 10000 miles. I get 32 mpg and pass all highway traffic with ease; sometimes three cars at a time. Never lacks passing power even at 85 mph! Understated German styling offers a grown-up look for those who want fun, but would be embarassed to drive a cartoonish sport coupe like the Mini,Celica or Eclipse.
Favorite Features
Blast by highway traffic with no downshift. Interior and gauges are classy and easy to use. Blue dash at night is very cool. One-touch electric windows and the sunroof are a joy. Heated seats. Hatchback cargo room. Awesome brakes. Tight handling. 180 hp is plenty. Chip for more.
Suggested Improvements
First gear is all-or-nothing. Either crawl away from the stoplight and get waxed by mini vans, or stomp the pedal, spin up the turbo and burn the tires as you leave everyone in the dust wondering what kind of crack you are smoking. A few rattles. How about an MP3 jack and xtra aux pwr jack?
