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


When i had to replace my civic hatch, i looked at all the "pocket rockets" out there like the civic si and the nissan se-r spec v. Then i looked at a car that i have always been in love with, the gti. The car had all the options and it drove very smooth, but there was one thing i have dreamed of having forever. TURBO POWER. With traction control on, it spun the tires and the powerband was smooth as silk. The sound of the turbo was great too. It also had plenty of torque and that made it easier to drive than the other cars i drove. There hasn't been a day when i was unhappy with my buy. All i can say is to get the 5spd and the turbo. You won't be sorry.

Best Features

Lots of standard features, comfortable, fast, handles good, doesn't catch cops' eyes but still looks great, interior lighting is amazing, exhaust note sounds great and of course...turbo, turbo, turbo, turbo...

Worst Features

bad cupholder placement, there is a little too much body roll for a performance car, expensive service.
