Question about 2000 Volkswagen GTI

1 Answer

VW Bora 2.0 L petrol automatic

My VW bora seems very under powered. On a medium gradient hill it is lucky to hold 60 kph, it won't rev above 3500 rpm and ha bad fuel efficiency. Apart from that it seems in good mechanical condition, has been regularly serviced, has only 105 k's etc.

Your automatic choke warrants a look at and adjusting. If the air filter looks like its full of dust Etc' get it replaced. Clogged air filters will ruin your fuel efficiency no end.Find someone who knows what to look for.
