Fun to drive, a pain to maintain

2003 Volkswagen GTI VR6 2dr Hatchback (2.8L 6cyl 6M)


It is fun and easy to drive in heavy DC traffic or on roadtrips. The car is very stable on the highway and it plows through winter weather. The biggest problem is the reliability and build quality which is horrible. The car squeaks and rattles like a '72 AMC Gremlin. The fuel system is a nightmare. My car has had constant prolems with fuel delivery. It was in the shop for nearly 3 weeks right after I bought it. When starting up, The gas revs and then the car stalls out. You have to pump the gas to keep it running The window regulator failed . It is under warranty but the dealer hasn't had one in for a month. .

Best Features

Worst Features

less body lean in hard turns new cup holders new design for climate control maybe power seats and HID avail. BETTER QUALITY AND RELIABILITY NEEDED
