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


I was very very pleased with the car up
to about week 3, and now I can honestly
say that I will NEVER buy another VW.
Reason? The South-American Assembled
interior rattles more than a jar of
marbles in the paint shaker at home
depot. Going straight, going slow, on
the highway, in the neighboorhood,
doesnt matter. constant rattles from
everywhere in the car, more than even my
91 chevy blazer with broken interior
pieces. My question for VW is this: Why
are we still paying German prices and
premiums for South american construction
and quality?

Best Features

seats, powertrain.

Worst Features

either drop the price to reflect the location of construction and quality of the car or move the facility BACK to Germany and give us what we are paying for.
