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

Review

I owned a '97 Jetta GLX-VR6 and was very skeptical about the 1.8t GTI. While it does not have the torque and power of the 97 Jetta GLX-VR6, I am please with the overall quality of this vehicle. VW has made great improvements in the fit and finish, primarily in the interior. I test drove, and was considering the Nissan Sentra Spec-V, but the fit and finish of the GTI brought me back to Volkswagen.

Best Features

Quality, Fit, and Finish. Oh, and the fun factor is great too.

Worst Features

Improved Cup Holders. A trip home from the drive through requires 3 hands (1 to steer, 1 to shift, and 1 to make sure drinks dont spill). Otherwise, an Excellent Car.
