2002 GTI -Still going strong!
This is my second VW; my first being a'90 Corrado. It has the 1.8 turbo engine and 5 speed manual transmission. With regular maintenance, it has given me good service (173,000 miles, so far...) and is still fun to drive. It is not high tech, but that makes me pay more attention to driving. It can act as a mini-station wagon with its large cargo capacity. It is built like a tank. I wish I could but another new one exactly like mine, but I can't. So, it's maintain, maintain, maintain...!
