2001 Volkswagen GTI GLS 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


My 1.8T just turn 2 and it has been
fun. I usually buy a new car every 2-3
years because of the heavy mileage I
do. However, I think I'll keep this
little gem a little longer and maybe
do a few upgrades. I just don't think
I can part with it. It's fast, handles
great, and loves to go hard. You can't
beat this car up, it was meant for
hard driving.
I'm often in the drivers seat for
hours at a time a find the seating and
controls very comfortable. It has the
comfort of a much larger car, yet
handles nimbly.
The only negative was the window
problem others have experienced, but
my dealer fixed it right away. No
problems since.

Best Features

Acceleration, smoooooth engine - even my passengers are impressed. Fun to drive.
