Damn, it's fast!
By VW gal on


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


The whole process of getting the car
was a breeze. The dealership was very
very friendly, not pushy at all, like
the Nissan and Toyota dealerships here
in the Pasadena area. Now, back to
the car... this little hatchback is
fast! I can barely notice the turbo
lag. It comes with a lot of standard
features: ABS, side and curtain
airbags, full spare. The quality is
superb. I know you have probably
heard about how VWs are unreliable,
but they have had all the problems
worked out on the 04 models. I've had
this car for almost 3 months now, and
I am still very much in love with it.
Get it, you won't regret it.

Best Features

The gauges are blue, very racy. Sunroof, Monsoon, 17 inch wheels, acceleration, handling, and quality.

Worst Features

VW should work on fuel economy. I get about 17 mpg in the city (partly due to the way I drive), and around 29 on freeways (which is fine, I think). The front and rear valences should come painted.
