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


I love my car! Traded in a 98 Nissan
Pathfinder for this car that fits my
needs more. I got Tiptronic and luxury
pkg, although I was planning on just
buying basic + cold weather pkg- now
I'm hooked on the sunroof. This car
handles great. The quick pickup is
something else- it's truly a pocket
rocket! I test drove Acura RSX w/
manumatic trans, but that was boring.
This car is so much fun to drive- it
picks up my mood! Sure, the cup
holder's in a stupid place (over
stereo) but I forgive it since I like
other things so much. You can buy a
cupholder tray that fits in your
armrest from VW accessories web site,
which I promptly did :-)

Best Features

Quick acceleration, great looks, room in the back despite apparent size, sturdy interior material, seat warmers, 8 speakers

Worst Features

Move the cupholder! But other features make up for it
