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


In the 18 months I've had it, Its a fun
car to drive. I have the 15" wheels I
would suggest the the 16" or the 17".
Very smooth and quiet for such a small
car. No real problems yet other than a
dome light switch. With the 1.8T 5
speed was disapointed with the mileage
at first 26-27 city but has picked up
to 30+ city after 15,000 miles.

Best Features

Power, fuel milage, handling, Very smooth ride and can hall a lot of stuff around for such a small car.

Worst Features

Find a better way to fold down the rear seats with out removing the headrests. The manual transmission a bit whiney like the one in my `71 Beetle.
