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


This is the first car I ever purchased.
I am a first year college student, so
the 19 grand I dropped on my new GTI was
a lot. I loved it until everything
started to go wrong. I have had water
in my brake lines (which froze so I
could not stop or shift), a broken fuel
pump, broken ABS module, broken window
mechanism, broken clutch cable, broken
dome light switch, and a problem with
the door locks. I will never buy
another VW unless the company restores
my faith in a serious way.

Best Features

The acceleration and the shifting (untilI had problems with the clutch)

Worst Features

Please, Volkswagen, I bought this car for quality... get some.
