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


Well I only have 1234 miles and I am
already having problems. From day one
I noticed that my driver's seat keeps
reclining very slowly all by itself. I
keep having to adjust it forward. I
also have popping noise coming from my
left tie rod when I am backing out of
parking spots. I have a leak in the
weatherstripping around my passenger
door. And last but not least, my
freakin window popped off of the track
tonight. I would doubt that a Hyundai
or a Daewoo would even have this much
trouble in the first month. This truly
breaks my heart, because I absolutely
love this car. I pray that these are
the only problems I have. We'll see...

Best Features

This car truly makes driving fun again. Smooth shifting, love the nighttime dash. Nice cockpit design.

Worst Features

How about a little Quality Assurance..
