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


Thus far, I have experienced the same
problems documented by others. My
first trip to the dealership was
positive, to my surprise given the
heavy criticism leveled at VW service.
They fixed the excessive rattling
(which was present right at the start;
what the hell did I pay PDI for?), but
failed to fix the intermittent
illumination of the brake light. When
I telephoned the dealership and
reported that the problem was not
fixed, I was promised a free rental
which they renegged. I telephoned
Volkswagen Canada to lodge
a complaint. If the problem is not
redressed, I will make a follow up post
and name the dealership.

Best Features

I like the comfort, power and handling.

Worst Features

The service so far has been inconsistent. I have complained to VW Canada and if not redressed I will name the dealership in a follow up post.
