2003 Volkswagen GTI 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5A)
Review
Since my last review...the ignition coil has gone bad (while I was driving it)...and Today, after driving to a couple of places (running errands) my terrific and reliable (sarcasm) GTI decides it doesn't want to start...my car is stranded, blocking traffic! I have VW roadside assistance come out...they give me a jump and also state that the battery is just fine...turn off the car and guess what? It doesn't want to start again!!!! The clock defaults back to 1200/the trip mileage counter sets back to zero...I am guessing it's an electrical problem...have to wait until Monday...because VW service and customer service are closed on Weekends!
Suggested Improvements
I have lost all confidence in this car...the sad thing is, I haven't even had it a year. Don't purchase a VW, quality and reliability doesn't mean anything to them...I should have stayed with a Japanese carmaker that starts with a "T"
