Nice ride!

2002 Volkswagen GTI VR6 2dr Hatchback (2.8L 6cyl 5M)


Previously I owned a 98 Jetta GLX VR6:
the new A4 platform has signifigant
improvements in quality, comfort,
performance (handling/power), & such.
It's been a blast to drive. I've had
minor problems with the driver side
window making too much noise while
rolling up & down, but otherwise, I've
been satisfied.

Best Features

Good low end torque, suspension handles torque steer much better, nice 17" wheels, A/C & heat kick in very fast.

Worst Features

VW should get rid of Monsoon and return to Bose! My 98 Jetta GLX's Bose system/speakers was far more powerful than the crappy 200W Monsoon system/speakers. Also, I miss having an additional cup holder for the back seats (as was in the A3 series).
