It was love at first bite! As soon as I set eyes on the 2003 Volkswagen GTI, I was hooked! Although this vehicle was used, it looked as if it had just rolled off the show room floor. Its charcoal exterior...black leather interior...and five star rims...are flawless! I turned the key...music to my ears! The humming sound of that 1.8T engine was very inviting. I put it in first gear, and I knew this car was for me! With just a 4-cylinder engine, this car feels like a monster! It has fast acceleration, with more than enough torque to throw you head back in the seat! It is not what you'd expect out of a typical hatchback. If you looking for something between a sport and economy, this is your car! It is a true pleasure!
The looks, acceleration, handling, and overall driving experience!
