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


Mine is a 2003 GTI 1.8turbo. I hope I
have the new metal window regulators,
and the new "j" type coil packs. For
people reading this if I have the two
items listed above I would give this
car a 10!. GTI 2002 and earlier have
had so many issues with these two
problems. Infact I believe VW is doing
what they call "a silent recall"
regarding these issues. But the good
news is....even if it does break your
still under warranty right ! Bad news
is...will they have the part ? So my
overall score would be a 8.5 . Fun to
drive, good looks, handles good for
stock, fast even un-chipped, and a new
better longer warranty from vw starting
for the 2002 and up modles.

Best Features

Looks, interior, speed, wheels, handling, 2003 seats are awesome(sport bucket), moonsoon is not to bad, interior at night look cool.

Worst Features

Those cup holders....??? You would be better off using duck tape on the dash board. A few rattles here and there.
