2005 GTI 1.8 Turbo
By Brandon on


2005 Volkswagen GTI 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


I purchased this vehicle after owning a 1999 Honda Civic. What a difference! I love my new car. The turbo sounds awesome. I was going to get another civic hatchback but might as well get a hatch that comes stock at 180 hp. I recommend putting an exhaust on it, it handles much better and sounds 100 times cooler. The sound of a stock GTI wasn't appealing so I got a Megan Racing cat back exhaust. I have a check engine light on all the time though and nothing is actually wrong with my car. The cruise control also doesn't work. hopefully everyone else was lucky and managed to keep theirs going.

Best Features

Turbo, heated seats, 17" wheels

Stronger clutch, better suspension and electrical needs improvement
