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


So far, I've managed to avoid all of
the problems I've read in other
reviews here (lucky me... I truly feel
for the rest of you). That is, the
windows work and the car doesn't
rattle hardly at all. Of course, the
cupholder is COMPLETELY usless,
though ;) One thing that sucked was
the car was sold to me with a drained
battery, so it didn't start the next
day after I bought it. (Props to VW's
roadside assistance, though!) Well,
not a perfect start with my new GTI I
suppose, but I still love to drive it!
A great car so far, but its
relaibility is questionable.

Best Features

Dash lights, low-end pep to high end RAW POWER, awesomely-adjustable heated front seats, the many safety precautions, gas mileage, hauling capacity, overal look/feel/versatility.

Worst Features

Cup holder? Is THAT the thing that's completely blocking my stereo? Man, I HATE that thing!
