Too many problems
By Gunnar1 on


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


Great performance for the buck yet
terrible reliability. My GTI has been
in the shop more times than I can
count. I have about 17,000 miles on it
now and I have had the tranny replaced
at 2k the rotors and pads replaced at
200 miles, the check engine light has
come on three times. At about 4500
miles the passenger side window fell
into the door sill. A piece of trim
has come off of the roof twice. The
coil-packs have been replaced
recently. My brake lights stopped
working 1 week ago at the same time my
center console broke. My heated seats
do not work from numbers 1-4 they only
work on number 5. Need I say more?

Best Features

Technology package and heated seats.

Worst Features

Cup holders are in a terrible spot.
