Drive Train -- Verified

Reverse gear failures and noise in the manual transmission models are common.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

One or more power windows may fail. Our technicians tell us this is commonly due to a failed window regulator which will require replacement.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

One or both head lights may not work due to premature head light bulb burnout and/or bulb harness failure. Care should be taken to inspect the head light harness connector for damage when replacing bulbs. Damaged connectors should be replaced.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

The Check Engine Light may illuminate because of evaporative (EVAP) emission failures and/or intake manifold vacuum leaks.

2000 Volkswagen GTI Reviews

I have mixed feelings on this car.. I love how it drives, handles and responds to the road. I HATE fixing them-parts are expensive, seem made to break and it's laborious to do even the simplest jobs. I've sunk over $5k into this piece of sh*t, and it only has 66k miles on it. I think I got stuck with a lemon, but considering how unreliable VWs seem to be I won't ever buy another one.
