Pretty good!
By Harold on


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


The car is a blast to drive. I, too, like others
had to deal with the recalls which is never fun.
And the Monsoon radio has randomly quit
working 4 times with in the first year (dealer
says if it happens again they will install a new
one and bill VW). So don't get the Monsoon.
If you want sound just save your $$ and get an
aftermarket one. All that being said this car is
an absolute blast to drive. Period. It'll seat 4
adults reasonably comfortably and when the
rear seats go down its amazing how much
stuff can be crammed in there. Practicality
and performance in one package.

Best Features

Performance. Extremely practical. I've seen bank vaults that aren't built as nice and as high quality as this car. For the money you can't go wrong.

Worst Features

Recalls. Monsoon radio reliability. Placement of the cup holders is suspect at best. Ax the 5 speed and just have a six on both VR6 and 1.8T
