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


Just got the 5 speed 03' right before
the 04's were coming out. Outfitted with
leather, esp, 17" wheels, and luxury
package. got it for 19,600 so i'm pretty
pleased. first time buying a new car,
but i found one of the last GTI's in
California, and called them up and said
19,600 - i'll buy it right now. guess
that works. no problems thus far, the
clutch took some breaking in, but its
smooth now. occasional rattle in the
car, hard to keep black interior clean,
but the car can move. make no mistake
about it, they say it can take any
gasoline, but only premium will make it
behave like a GTI. sunroof is great,
looking forward to driving it home after

Best Features

whizz of the turbo, seats, seat heaters in the winter, the pickup on this thing is great. hatchback room with the seats down is like having a mini station wagon.

Worst Features

cup holders are more useless than my lap. car drives firm which is nice, but maybe too firm. if you're gonna block the stereo with the cupholder, give me stereo controls on the steering wheel!
