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


I have driven many different cars, from Ferraris to Citroens to Yugos. As an everyday car, the GTI is excellent. Great power, economy, and comfort. I can't ask for more at $20,000. My last two cars have been BMWs but I don't miss their handling and the GTI is much quicker so I am very satisfied. It works great in the snow even with upgraded sport rims and tires! I am very impressed with this aspect. It proves the car has great balance.

Best Features

Turbo, seats, sunroof, sport rims, excellent reliability so far (27,000 mi).

Worst Features

The cupholder is in a bad location. A little less torque steer would be nice. Some creaks in the back end but only on rough roads.
