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


I really like this car but I can't
believe the problems I 've had the past
2 years. Five times the windows have
fallen down into the doors, various
plastic pieces inside keep falling off
or break, the headlights suddenly
stopped working, and the tail lights
have had problems. My dealer has fixed
most of these problems without charge
but Volkswagen will not even admit
there is an epidemic with the window
situation and are non cooperative on
the customer service phone. The car is
a blast to drive but I really have to
question the overall quality of some of
the design, and Volkswagen needs to
fess up to the window problem and do a

Best Features

Fun to drive. Great acceleration and handling.

Worst Features

Power window problem and Volkswagens lack of concern for the safety of their customers really makes me wonder if I would ever buy a Volkswagen again. I hope you post this review because their is a serious problem with the windows.
