Incredible car

Vehicle: 1990 Volkswagen Corrado 2dr Coupe

Bought this car used with 70K miles on it back in 97. It now has over 200K miles, has been very reliable for it's age, and a great car all around to own and drive. Very quick for a 1.8 liter engine, has superb handling and gets excellent gas mileage. Besides regular oil changes and tune ups, I've gone through 2 batteries, had to replace the fuel pump/filter twice now, and replaced the radiator, the water pump and the muffler when I put a stainless steel exhaust system on it several years ago. It looks sharp and I still get plenty of compliments on this car. No doubt this has been most reliable and the best car I've ever owned and it's looks are timeless.

1990 corrado g60

Vehicle: 1990 Volkswagen Corrado 2dr Coupe

This car get a lot of looks from many people. They tend to think that is a lot newer than it is but for being 18 years old, it looks fantastic. you can't beat the feeling og driving one of these cars, it never gets old. Make sure that you take one to the dealer BEFORE you buy it. Small things that aren't noticable at first can go bad quick and be costly. They should bring this car back out, it would sell nicely.




Best car to own!

Vehicle: 1990 Volkswagen Corrado 2dr Coupe

This car has been the best car I have ever owned. It has never left me stranded (never broke down for that matter). Even at 16 years old it is still fast and handles great! It gets 25 MPG in the city and 30-33 on the highway. I suggest that you get the G-Charger rebuilt every 100,000 miles. There are many clubs that keep the car young. It is just as great as it was when new. Five stars in my book for sure *****




Never had more fun

Vehicle: 1990 Volkswagen Corrado 2dr Coupe

I had a corrado for 3 years...during that three years It was out of commission for more than 1 year, yet to this day I still regret selling it. I am a car enthusiast, and I have yet to drive a car that has made me feel more connected to the road. or happier that the corrado. I currently have a Nissan Sentra SE-R, but it pales in comparison. Today is 1/21/03 and by 2/15/03 I will own a new car, I have looked for a car that can embodie the spirit of the Corado, and I have found the Golf 1.8 litre turbo, the Audi TT 180 H.P. FWD, and the Mini Cooper S, I'll soon make a decision, and I'm leaning tword the audi, but time will tell....

Goodbye corrado

Vehicle: 1990 Volkswagen Corrado 2dr Coupe

After 10 yrs and 120k miles of fun, I'm about to sell my 1990 G60. It's been an engaging car and selling it was a tough decision, but it's getting old enough that I need to replace it with something more reliable (a MINI Cooper S is one of the few worthy cars on the market). The Corrado has a classic design that still looks current. Still looks great inside and out and is very well made overall. Some items needed repeated replacement (steering rack) while others are still original (clutch, rear shocks) after 140k miles. Had more trouble in the first 2 yrs, but later attributed most of that pain to an service from an untrustworthy dealer.

When you consider VW had 8 model lines in 1990 and Honda only had 4, the difference is even more obvious. The Fox, Corrado, and even the popular Cabriolet are noexistent on the roads these days. Whe...

seems that every VW, regardless if it's a Fox or Corrado, is maintenance-intensive. They seem to require lots of maintenance in spite of being well-built cars. I know people that spend a lot of time ...

josephf1 couldn't have expressed my reservations better than he did in Response #25!! Seems like there's a fear factor in buying a VW, even thought the test drive's so satisfying. I had a 1990 Corrado...
