this car is a lovely car but if you buy
this car from the right dealer.i would
never go to east cost automall again
which they located in nj in
englewood.the car runs perfect and it's
a fun car.it's pretty quick and
I had the Jetta 2.0L in 2000, then the
2001 4dr Golf 1.8T, and now thw 2003
Golf GTI 1.8T. The quality of these
cars in excellent. There are no other
cars in this class or price range that
have this kind of durability and safety.
My favorite feature is the engine. The
1.8T is a great engine. I tis very
smooth and gives a lot of power.
The front seats tend to make noise.I
have had this with all 3 VW's and it
seems to be par for the course. One
Improvement that stands out is that
they should have a 4dr GTI with the
1.8T and the 6cyl. I prefer a 4dr, but
the good engines are only offered in
I am really impressed with this
vehicle. It is a great combination of
perfomance/ style/ and reliability/
and Cost. Im an Automotive Engineer
and a tough customer :-)
Although North America does not have
the Haldex AWD coupling (which my
company makes) This car performs great
with the stability control option. My
decision was down to the GTI and the
Mini S. I chose the GTI because of
engine performance and the 20th annv.
package is just cool!
