You get what you pay for. An Ok vehicle
By a701440 on
Vehicle2002 Volkswagen GTI 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
ReviewInitially I liked the vehicle a lot.
However after a while it developped a
number of problems and needed 3 visits
to the dealership for variouse non
maintenance warranty items in the first
year of ownership ($200-$400 each if
out of warranty). Rattles are
everywhere. VW dealerships have a very
bad reputation in general. 1 week to
get an appointment is considered
excellent. So far the wehicle barely
meets my expectations. Based on the
service, reliability and rattles I will
not buy a VW again. And to top it off I
did not even mentioned the ignition
coils debacle going on.
Best FeaturesExterior and interior design (excluding the rattles) + 1.8T (excluding the poor parts quality like coils, MAFs, etc.)
Worst FeaturesVW needs to seriously focus on the parts quality and the dialership network quality.
