2003 Volkswagen GTI Hatchback VR6 2dr Hatchback (2.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

VR6 engine is this cars best asset.
Ugly looking from the outside. Just
tell yourself its a Jetta when you're
in it driving.


Best Features

Best front seats of any VW. Most reliable and fun to drive engine VW builds.


Worst Features

New look for front end. Better location for rear speakers. A little more width.

2003 Volkswagen GTI Hatchback 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

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.


Best Features

My favorite feature is the engine. The 1.8T is a great engine. I tis very smooth and gives a lot of power.


Worst Features

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 the coupe.

2003 Volkswagen GTI Hatchback 20th Anniversary Edition 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

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!


Best Features

The power plant baby + 18"wheels/tires!


Worst Features

Add the Haldex AWD. http://www.haldextraction.com Steering wheelcontrols for radio
