Returning to the land of VDubs...

Hey all- It's been a few years since I owned a VW... I've had a 91 Jetta Wolfsburg, a 96 Golf GL, and a 97 Jetta GLS. I'm selling my new Jeep and am looking into buying a used VW to keep payments/ costs low. I've seen a couple 1.8t 4 door golfs around... When did they stop making that? I'm just curious about my chances of owning one from 2002, or 2003. It gives me the practicality and the fun in a package that I find to be pleasing to the eye. I'm drooling to get back behind the wheel of a VW, and I need something with more cargo room but I just cannot see myself in a Jetta Wagon.... not yet anyhow!

Thanks for the replies, and I look forward to not just being a member of the site, but a driver as well!!

Dave

Welcome.
They only made the 4-door 1.8t Golf's for two years, a few thousand between 2000 and 2001.
They are out there, just have to look.

Ok... so if 2001 was the last year for them, that means the 1.8t delivers 150 hp, not 180? In light of that, and the fact that I can get a newer 2.0 for less moneywith many less miles, someone please tell me about the 2.0 ..... They aren't powerhouses for sure, but what kind've modding can you do to extract some HP from them? 115 hp- I might as well throw a lawnmower engine in there. How's the torque? I'm looking at a manual tranny so it won't be THAT bad, but still.... lemme know your two cents...

thanks- Dave

Yes, they were 150HP.
2.0's are fine engines, very strong...but a little lacking on power. 115HP is correct, and torque is noting great.
Normally aspirated options are few, and forced induction seems to be the posion of choice for someone to stubborn to just buy a 1.8t

There is a 1.8T 4dr that is rare but findable. The end year 2001 1.8T engine code AWW
If you can find one of these you you will be very happy. Since most 1.8T owners stop at the chip this is surely a bang for the buck car. The AWD motor makes 150 and so does the AWW but when you add a chip it's a big diferance .The AWW jumps past the numbers the awd can make and catches up to the later 1.8T motors. making a woping 215 hp with 240 torque .This is with no other modifications other than a chip. No small car on the market can give you such a power gain for just a chip install.

always down playing the awd......man o man. when i just had a chip and cold air and a tip i made far more torque then an aww with full exhaust chip tip intercooler pipe dv etc.
the awd is a competitor

Name 1
65 hp
85 torque
I have never seen any other car company build a 4 cylinder car that has this much of a gain from a chip for only $500. With out having any other part changed.

Oh AWD's suck :P I said it. If I had an AWD I would be going crazy right now.
Oh god my turbo blew. Whats this limp mode Yadda yadda yadda
There is not one thing besides swaping to an AEB or what ever head which no one has done to make a big diferance. The coil rumor well guess what they fit AWW' and AWP's too :P
Good lord who gives a rats ass buy a honda

caez, do u need a hug? your stating your opinion, so your entitled to it. i agree that for the money chips give you alot of bang for the buck. as far as the 2.0... not to bash any owners of the 2.0 owners but the motor is lacking no matter what you do to it. im winging it here but with most peeps budget, you could supercharge it or turbo the car and get 210 hp. not worth teh money if you ask me. like i said i prob stepped on some toes and for that im sorry but lets be honest... the 2.0 will never make the power a 1.8t or vr6 makes. that motor was designed to be fuel efficient and thats exactly what it will do. if you want good HP, then opt for the turbo setup or go all motor for a while then drop the turbo kit into a vr6. thats the most potent setup of vw's line up but also the MOST expensive to do.

OK... I'm a little lost in the technical mumbo-jumbo, so someone PLEASE water it down for me!!! I should look for an engine code A-W-W, right? What's AWD? As a layman, I'd think all wheel drive, but I'm guessing it's another engine code. What's the difference??? And with nothing more than a chip, I could get 210 HP?? And how might that affect the gas mileage? Those of you with the 1.8 and the 2.0- what's your mileage look like???

And to throw a monkey wrench in here... what about the TDI??? 95HP, but what about the torque? and mods? I read a thread in here that modding it is way expensive, but very worthwhile.

so many things in my head at 5AM!!! I need a coffee!

well, aww, and awp and awd are just engine codes. every engine regardless of manufacturer has an engine code. the ones mentioned are different ypes of 1.8t motors. some engine codes are easier to work on then others. the TDI has less HP then the 2.0 but damn does it got torque. what would you expect, its a diesel. you can do very little to a TDI. i think they make a chip for it that improves the HP but makes the TQ alot higher. the 2.0 is an econo-motor. cut and dry its for saving gas cuz i honestly cant find any other use for it.
