2002 Volkswagen GTI 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


The GTI comes standard with everything
you need, although I got mine with the
optional leather package and 17 in.
wheels. I love the interior, especially
the blue/red instrumentation. The GTI is
also a bit of a sleeper, which I like.
It seems that most drivers don't know
about the GTI, and don't expect it to be
as fast as it is. I must say that I love
the whistling/whooshing sound of the
turbo. The 1.8T is a great engine.

Best Features

I like that it comes with 6 airbags and anti-lock brakes. The hatchback design also makes the GTI very practical. Also, the turbo!

Worst Features

The exhaust is too quiet. The standard 6-speaker Monsoon CD player/radio doesn't sound that great.
