2002 Volkswagen Golf GLS 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I just purchased the gls a month ago and it truly is an incredibly fun car to drive. I love everything about it: the interior design, the blue and red lights, the stereo, huge cargo space, 8 airbags, abs breaks etc etc. The new 4 year warranty is great too. The handling is amazing and it definitely feels and looks like a more expensive car. I had a strange, albeit minor glitch the first week when my alarm started going off by itself at random times whenever i locked the doors. The dealer looked at it, and were a bit perplexed, but think it had to do with the starter (which they replaced). I still am not sure, but hopefully that will be my only problem with the car.

Best Features

dashboard lights, in-dash cd player (now standard on 2002 golfs)

Worst Features

Cupholders are in the worst place and the car isnt very soundproof so it can be a noisey ride. I also wish it still came in the 1.8 turbo! The 2.0 liter isn't very fast when starting out, but once its in gear it picks up in speed nicely.
