A Lemon in every bunch
By pruittjg on


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


Bought this "dream car" for my daughter
in college. Can't deny the fact that
it is fast and fun to drive, but the
quality is lousy. It has been in the
shop no less 7 times in 8 months for
both windows ( a known fault), stereo
problems, brake problems, airbag
problems. The last time the srvice
personnel were frustrated and said that
it looked like it had been put together
using spare parts and not the right
ones. Never again a VW.

Best Features

It is fast and handles great.

Worst Features

Try quality control.
