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


The car could be one of the best for a
small sporty cars. My car has been in
the shop 12 TIMES for ignition coil
problems and there has been little to
no satisfaction from Corporate.

This is my 4th VW and by far the one
with the most problems. The coils will
have you in the shop every couple
months and the service is terrible.

Best Features

Quick, fast, enjoyable drive (when working), able to make modifications.

Worst Features

FIX THE COILS / WINDOWS. Better interior, some more bells. OH BY THE WAY FIX THE COILS. Lastly FIX THE COILS.
