1990 Volkswagen Corrado Hatchback 2dr Coupe


Review

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.


Best Features

Reliability, excellent handling and fun to drive. Sharp contemporary styling.


Worst Features

AC vents could be updated and would be nice to have cup holders. Would be great to see this car back into production with a 2.0 liter supercharged engine and all the modern amenities currently available.

1990 Volkswagen Corrado Hatchback 2dr Coupe


Review

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 Features

I love the automatic locks and you can even roll up your windows with the key. The automatic spoiler is an eye catcher to almost any driver that is behind you.

1990 Volkswagen Corrado Hatchback 2dr Coupe


Review

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 *****


Best Features

This car is very comfortable to drive. It haas excellent handling, lots of power, and it is very dependable.

1990 Volkswagen Corrado Hatchback 2dr Coupe


Review

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....


Best Features

Drives like it's on velcro. My yellow paint!!


Worst Features

Longer warranty, less electronic glitches, stronger tranny, and motor mounts. More relaiable in general.

1990 Volkswagen Corrado Hatchback 2dr Coupe


Review

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.


Best Features

Classic good looks, acceleration, handling, supple feel of the leather wheel and shifter, seats, rarity.


Worst Features

Improve reliability of the sunroof and I'll take a cup holder (just one).
