2003 Volkswagen GTI VR6 2dr Hatchback (2.8L 6cyl 6M)

Review

To be honest, I have mixed feelings about the car. It's great fun to drive, but, today, I ended my lease on the car; it was in the shop 36 days from Sept 18th, 2002 to March 18th, 2003!!! I am going to the much more reliable TDI 1.9L Golf. I hope I am making the right choice. Oh, and for those of you looking to buy a GTI, beware! My car insurance TRIPLED after getting the GTI (I had a Mazda 626 before the GTI and I have a completely clean record!!!)

Best Features

Fun to drive, great handling, VR6 has more than enough power.

Worst Features

RELIABLITY!!! Pieces of the transmission needed replacing after 3 weeks! Ignition coils went out TWICE. Cupholders SUCK (as has been duly noted). Cupholders stuck inside dash. My speedometer stopped working occassionally. Gas mileage blows.
