By rmarz91 on


2003 Volkswagen GTI VR6 2dr Hatchback (2.8L 6cyl 6M)


The good: Power, car looks good--Interior
looks well made--Like the heated leather
seats--Radio looks cool--17"wheels

The bad: Had at the dealer many times
because the check engine light keeps
coming on--Have to drive with the seat
moved forward about 3 inches if you want to
fold the rear seats down--Monsoon sound
system has NO bass response--Climate
control fan starting to make noise--Factory
roof rack mounting bolts not mounted
properly into frame on passengers side
making mounting a roof rack very difficult if
not impossible--No help for previous issue
from VW -- Has 5500 miles on it and is
developing alot of rattles and noises.

Best Features

Heated leather seats, cool 17" wheels

Worst Features

Bass response from stereo, service response from VW, climate control fan, Votex roof racks are lousey. improve roof rack mounting system, engine lights coming on from sensor problems are too common from VW, overall build quaility could be improved or price should come down.
