1993 Volkswagen Corrado Hatchback SLC 2dr Coupe


Review

I have owned a black 1993 Corrado VR6 with black Recaro leather from day one from dealer and now at 20 years old and 260 000km it still puts a smile on my face.Reliability is excellent and only changed normal wear and tear parts and some sunroof and coolant problems but what car have you owned that has not needed repairs and i was happy to fix a good car. Now i don't use it as my every day car and my wife tells me to sell it but i don't want to let her go.This car was something special when built you can't get that feeling unless today you spend big money.Best VW ever built and the sound of that VR6.


Favorite Features

Raising spoiler just like Porches. VR6 engine is outstanding. locking the door will close the sunroof and windows. Handling and performance.


Suggested Improvements

Nothing

Review

Awesome car that performs and handles just as good if not better then a lot of newer vehicles today. Love this car because its rare don't see to many driving around, fun to drive, sounds great and is very good looking even now. Can easily purchase a corrado for under $5000. If you have considered buying a corrado I warn that they can be expensive to maintain, but well worth it since there was under 100,000 produced world wide. Future collector car? Will enjoy this car for years to come .


Favorite Features

Vr6 performance, handling, looks, rarity.


Suggested Improvements

Lower priced parts. VW bring back the corrado !

Review

Corrados these days are a cult followed car. They are known as one of the best VWs ever built. However, its base price in the early 90s was a lot and you could have gotten a base entry Porsche for it. They are often called the Poor Man's Porsche and the name sticks. With very nice handling and 0-60 speed in the 5 second area, it makes the Corrado a car of this era. The great things include the speed sensitive rear spoiler. However, being a 17 year old car at the most, expect to pay quite a bit for upkeep on one of these rare sport coupes that was never given a chance. Also, in good running condition expect to pay ~ $5,000-$9,000 plus a few maintenance bills.


Favorite Features

Stands out, gets a lot of attention by the public. Speed sensitive spoiler. Outstanding handling. Good fuel efficiency at about 30 MPG hwy and 25 MPG city. Very comfortable. Rear seats fold down giving you equivalent space as a small SUV. Very light, meaning very fast.


Suggested Improvements

Get coilovers and lower the car more. Get timing chains in VR6 done every 80-100 thousand miles. Install B3 Passat moonroof, direct replacement, more durable.

Review

I bought my 1993 Corrado used with approx 68k miles on her. Now at 200k miles she is still running great, the engine and transmission have never been apart, other than the timing chains and clutch at 126k. The stock sunroof by VW/Rockwell is the only non functioning part on the car. For the fun per mile owned, the sleek lines and rock solid German contruction and coachwork by Karmann cannot be beat.


Favorite Features

Body style, seat comfort, ergonomics, safety in cabin design (I was in a 50mph crash with no injuries). Silky smooth powerful VR6 engine. Easy to maintain.


Suggested Improvements

Front wiper, sunroof mechanism, roof trim deterioration.

Review

I'm a vw addict. I love the corrado. I had a 98 GTI VR6 before this. Even though the GTI was newer and a little more solid feeling, I love the corrado. With TT wheels, H&R coilovers, exhaust, intake, chip, Oettinger body kit, etc., I can't drive anywhere without people taking double looks or pointint at my car. Definitely unique and fun to drive, even if it isn't the fastest car on the road or the biggest bang for the buck.


Favorite Features

VR6, leather, the "look at that" factor


Suggested Improvements

its too bad the VR6 was introduced in these cars, because alot of the glitches have been worked out over the years, gaskets are notoriously bad on these cars and my head gasket is starting to go, every corrado I've seen runs alot hotter than new vr6's as well
