It’s time for me to part with my 2003 GTI 1.8 T.
I’ve heard that the newer models tend to have more issues.
I’m looking for a used car that may be comparable. That has about 60,000 miles and in the $10K to $15,000 range.
Features that I like:
I am a shorter driver (5’2) and like the smaller size, adjustable features, and visibility.
It has a nice balance of pep, agility and fuel economy. I like driving my manual transmission, but an automatic is okay.
As for bells and whistles, sunroof, backup cam, nav, and seat heat are preferable.
