2.0's use two coils in what is called a wasted-spark ignition system. The coil fires two cylinders at once, but since only one of the cylinders is on the compression stroke, the other spark is "wasted". Coil pack problems on 2.0s are extremely rare as they share no components with either of the above two systems.

|Dave- You migh want to mention that the VR6 also uses a "wasted spark"-type coilpack. I posted the Bentley description of how it works a while back, along with the Bentley instructions for testing the coilpack.|

Just thought Id mention that I had my coilpack fail in my 2001 2.0 golf. When I pulled it out, there were 3~4 visible cracks in the case. Dealer initially wouldnt do anything as there was no recall for the 2.0. I took the coil pack in and handed it to the service manager and he offered me a $100 inhouse credit, so that atleast helped. Symptoms were rough idle and occasional misfire under load.
