2001 Volkswagen GTI GLX VR6 2dr Hatchback (2.8L 6cyl 5M)


This car has been plagued with
problems, regardless of the fact that I
bought it new. Where do I start?
1)Rain sensor was broken, which
required a new windshield. 2)Rear-view
mirror came detached twice. 3)Check
engine light came on twice. 4)
Passenger window fell in. 5)Air
conditioning motor stopped working. 6)
Alarm system malfunctioned. I take
excellent care of this car, yet
Volkswagen has let me down repeatedly.
I will never again purchase a
Volkswagen, and I am cautioning
everyone I know to stay away from

Best Features

When the car is not in the shop, it is comfortable and fun to drive.

Worst Features

Has anyone at Volkswagen ever heard of quality control? It is clearly NOT at the top of their priority list.
