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


I'm at 6,000 miles on my 2003 1.8t GTI and so far it's been a great ride. Fuel ecomony is good but does take a hit if you "drive" the car. But it's worth the hit trust me. I get a smile on my face every time I'm behind the wheel. The 1.8t engine is suberb and delivers plenty of power when needed. The car handles like a dream especially on the twisty roads here in New England. The Monsoon sound system is sounds awesome and delivers some serious bass for a factory stereo. Over all it's everything I expected!!!!!!!

Best Features

1.8t engine, the Monsoon Sound System, the storage system for the back headrests when the back seats are folded down, power mirros, blowng by Hondas on the road with a smile. The sound of the turbo suckin in the air!!

Worst Features

Cup holders that don't turn off the stereo when you hit a bump!!!! Other than that nothing.
