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


bought new for less than $20,000 three
years ago. the power during the test
drive convinced me to buy it. solid
feel of a german car puts my old honda
to shame. my first car was vw bug in
1972 so it was kind of like coming home
to an old friend. the only problem i've
had is the engine light sometimes comes
on in cooler weather (ignition coil
factory recall?). i suppose my only
real complaint is that i need to be
aggressive with the clutch when the
light turns green to keep up with the
automatic transmissions.

Best Features

power and solid feel

Worst Features

seems like newer models have better selection of options: wheels, colors, power, etc.
