People keep asking me if my car is a
current year model. The Corrado is the
best unknown VW. I have seen many a
new car owners, in particular new to VW
owners rubbernecking. I can only image
them thinking that "Hey! How'd I miss
that VW on the lot. I would have bought
it instead of this!". Smooth ride, I
think the G60 is better balanced than
the VR6 later models. Easy to upgrade,
timeless styling, good on gas (Still
26mpg w/ mods, when I stay off the
gas), Neat features like the MFA
computer, two position sunroof, speed
activated spolier (just like the
Porsche's), BBS wheels. I could go on,
but this is the best VW I've owned.
Power locks work both doors and hatch
at the same time. Both windows have
auto-down feature. MFA comp. Handling
is great. Timeless Styling is superb.
Top quality-not a single rattle in a
12yr old car. Easy maintenence.
One worrisome item is the
supercharger. It's pretty pricing to
replace. Many people quickly turn to a
turbo when the charger "G"renades.
The number 1 improvement I could think
of would be a 2005 VW Corrado T2.0.
FUN, FUN, FUN...
Low selling price, don't be
fooled...what you save in a car payment
will be spent on repairs. The cars are
aging and it shows.
DO NOT BUY AN AUTOMATIC!!!
Check out the supercharger...and don't
think that expensive mods add to the
selling price. You should be paying
more for a stock Corrado if it was well
The G60 supercharger...especially on a
cool, damp day. At 65mph+ you can give
any V6 a run for the money...and I have
heard of modded G60's that can beat a
If you buy one...joing the corrado list
on yahoo clubs. This collection of
owners and enthusiests will be your
biggest resource. also make sure to
pay regular visits to the vwvortex
True VW enthusiasts will appreciate the
design and power of this supercharged
G60 engine. VW's have their history
rooted in 4 cylinders and this one is a
classic. The car has a lot of power,
handles incredibly, looks like a Euro
car, and is comfortable. It may look
small but with its slightly sloped rear
hatch this car has enough room to fit a
30,000 BTU air conditioner(with rear
seats down of course). I've owned one
for 9 years and am still as enthused as
the first day I purchased it.
