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


I just took delivery of my GTI, and
man, this thing is fun to drive. On
top of it being very quick, it also
stays glued to the road, and all of the
controls are easy to figure out and
easy to reach. On top of that, I'm a
professional drummer, and even with as
little as the car seems to be, I can
fit my entire drumset in the car with
ease. How many cars are that fun to
drive AND are practical too? Not too
many. Man I love this car...

Best Features

sunroof, pretty darn good stereo, and my God, the performance!

Worst Features

Allow aftermarket modifications! I found out quickly that I could easily bump up the engine to somewhere in the 230hp range, and I'll have to wait until the warranty runs out to do it. Sigh...
