Rattles ruin almost perfect review
By Chunk on


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


Turob GTI makes this car one peppy
ride. Handles like a charm, I have
felt nothing like it except my friends
BMW M3. Plenty of head room for a tall
guy like me (6'4").

Best Features

Engine is hot, dash is easy to read, key chain is cool, nice color, AC output is solid, triptronic transmission is a fun feature, low profile rims look great and are worth the extra cash.

Worst Features

What's the deal with the rattles? Fix it! Screws holding sun shades to body will not tighten, cup holders are in poor location, crome surrounding shifter is cheezy. Why no trip computer on this model? Why no audio controls on steering wheel?
