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


The original sport compact and still the best. It is fun to drive and can be had for around $20,0000. I have been averaging 28 - 30 mpg. The interior quality is by far the best in this price range. The car is easy to chip, which adds up to 30 HP and 50 ft./lbs.of torque! When chipped, it will bury a $5,0000 more expensive Acura RSX Type S or Subaru WRX.

Best Features

Interior quality, fuel economy, price, fun to drive, performance tuning options.

Worst Features

Add bass to the factory sound system, improve build quality - I had to replace door seals to stop water leaks.
