2002 Volkswagen GTI V5 Exclusive 2.3 V5
If you live near your VW dealer, buy the car
Windscreen wiper engine replaced, front and rear.
The instrument panel glass make noises. The car has been for service 4 times, but its not yet fixed.
Noise from the backseats. Haven't been fixed.
The front lamdasond broke down. Fixed.
The handling is OK due to the 225/45 17 tires and lowered suspension.
Quality great when it comes to material, but reliability of the mechanical parts its pretty normal I think.
Engine sounds lovely.
I could have been very pleased with the car if the service was OK, but the service sucks! The minor problems I have would have stayed minor if they were fixed the first time. But the fourth time you get real frustrated. I mean this is not the most cheap car you can buy today.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
