ReviewI bought this car used in great condition w/63,500 on OD. Looked like a new car in and out. Very good deal-got it for less than my previous VW GTI new. This car has a GREAT engine! Be prepared for high dealer repair cost... I put in three saturdays of work in the car and saved over $2000 in labor. I knew what to look out for- the stock shocks are almost always blown by 50,000, but I would have switched to Bilstiens anyways. Put in a new water pump and thermostat , changed all the fluids and spark plugs. Did a once over on the car-Not bad for a used car that should be bullet proof for a while now.
Best FeaturesThe Engine is a beast! Although the stock sport suspension would be more than adequate for most buyers, with some suspension and wheel and tire tuning, this car will eat the road, still be comfortable, with luxury and room to spare. Just what the doctor ordered to go with my new twins!
Worst FeaturesThe dealer will treat you like you have money to throw around- so be prepared for the high cost of labor and parts. In general this is a very well built car-but if you want a get it and forget it car this might not be the one for you. Look out for -suspension,cooling system,vdo gauges.
