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


The 1.8T is fun to drive and I haven't
done any modifications. My biggest
gripe/problem is the car is seeing the
dealership more than the road now!
Check engine light has came on 3 times
over the last 3 months...and it's on
again. This is my second VW and I
don't think there will be a 3rd. They
say they only get better and learn from
the consumer...but i guess I'm tired of
being the test market on my account.
Coil pack issue, plastic window clips,
air bag sensor light...what's next?

Best Features

The interior is very accommodating to the tall person.

Worst Features

I would like to see VW work on bettering their reputation. Work hard to be better than honda. When i talk to car enthusiast...they don't talk about VW. Would like to know that if I bought a VW...consumer guide wouldn't dog it so bad.
