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


This has got to be the ugliest car I have ever owned!! However, this little car will pass almost anything on the road. I picked up the car with 7k miles (it now has 60k) and have had no problems, even after having the computer, exhaust and intake re-worked for more power. It loves to be punished! Loads of interior room is a bonus for such a small car. This is my first vw and I must say I'm impressed. Fuel economy is great if you keep your foot out of the turbo, but what fun is that?

Best Features

Turbo, fuel economy, interior space

Worst Features

Open the engine up and give it more power and better fuel economy from the factory. It also has rear-end float at high speeds, a bit scary!
