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


This car has given me more headaches than it is worth. My problems with it to date are as follows: 1-radio knob broke and fell off, headrests were missing upon delivery. 2-breaklights stopped working (dealer fixed) 3-front right wheel well fell out! 4-driver side seat was defective and replace 5-passenger seat was defective and replaced 6-on board computer display issues...dealer would not fix unless they saw it happening. 7-battery defective and replace at year two, 20,000 miles 8-dealer gave on computer display, replaced cluster with another yet another defective one 9-back for another gauge cluster... If you buy one, live close to the dealer, you'll be there a lot.

Best Features

This car is at least fast and fun to drive...at that point, positive comments must end.

Worst Features

Build in some quality will you! I have never had so many issues with one car. The gas mileage is no where near the stated 21 city 31 highway. It's more like 15 city, 25 highway. Train your dealers to keep appointments and promised times for warrenty work completion.
