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

Review

The car is easy to drive: it cruises to the grocery store with Clark Kent modesty but will also roar through the gears, shaming other vehicles with astounding low-end power, smooth high rpm shifting, and assertive turbo boost. Also brilliant in the rain, with excellent wipers all around and top notch defogger and heated mirrors, and it is blissful in the sun with the roof open. The seats are superb, and the cabin exudes quality and forethought. The GTI is a true automobile in world too cluttered with mere cars.

Favorite Features

There's so much to say: power, handling, comfort, cargo space and interior design, passenger room. Brilliant powertrain and awesome brakes.

Suggested Improvements

The floormats are garbage and an insult when combined with the $1200 luxury package and $800 leather package--it's like, "ok, that'll be another $100.00 for floor mats, Mr Customer, even though you just bought a $2000 optional interior package. Pathetic.
