GTI hard to beat in it's class!
By Colby on


2000 Volkswagen GTI GLS 1.8T Turbo 2dr Hatchback


Basically flawless. What a great
little car with surprising amount of
room. Amazes others with it's quality
feel and performance. Like so many of
the car mags have said, "feels like a
car costing $10,000 more." and "rivals
BMW for it's fit and finish."
Embarrasses it's competition for
safety, amenities, fit and finish,
standard equipment, and the like. The
VW GTI is simply hard to beat.

Best Features

Wonderful 1.8T engine. What a gem, smooth power just above idle to the redline. No waiting for the power to build like in the GTI's competition, and none of the lawnmower like thrashing noises of those Japanese cars either. Oh, and of course the blue/red interior lights!

Worst Features

Should come with higher performance tires for the car that defined the segment. Brake pads that produce less brake dust. Car is vault like quiet except the door seals tend to squeak from time to time, especially when cold. Different door seals would cure that tiny annoyance.
