My Little Pocket Rocket
By Jason on


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


My GTI was already lowered and had larger wheels and other suspension components installed by the previous owner so the ride is bit stiff, but it corners and jumps up from a stop like a champ! I'm totally sold on German engineering. I came from a Mustang background and while this car can't touch a Mustang in a straight line, when it comes to the full sense of drivability and fit and finish, the Mustang with all its plastic pieces and jittery noises can't compete with the GTI. I won't even mention my gas mileage improvement... that goes without saying. An all around great little car and an absolute pleasure to own.

Best Features

Turbocharged engine, leather interior, sunroof, heated seats, instant torque off the line, steering and braking.

Worst Features

I'm satisfied with what I've got!
