Best used car I've ever had

2004 Volkswagen GTI 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Bought this in 09 with 91k, now have 105k.
The quality of the interior is top notch, love the feel of the switch gear.
Shifting and clutch action on the 5 speed is very smooth.
Get around 24mpg mostly city driving, 30mpg hiway.
I have the 17" rims which really look sharp.
Great stereo too.
Only repair besides tires in 2.5 yrs was coil modules that caused it to run like it was on 2 cylinders, was able to limp to shop in that shape.
Check engine light is persistent for coolant temp, but confirmed that actual temp matches gauge, not hot.
Just enough fun to drive with a couple blasts through 1st & 2nd with great cornering, but not too much power to get in trouble. Broke console hinge
