1994 Volkswagen Corrado Hatchback SLC 2dr Coupe


Review

The corrado and its my third one! Another vr6, and g60 was fun. They stick to the road, hold in your kidneys, and make you swallow your tongue! The girls love it. No ones ever seen one... And it shifts like a stick of butter greasing a hot pan. This car puts up competition for all the newer body styles and its fast enough to park next to a v8 what else could you ask for? it's hard cruising two men and two ladies comfortably, but it fits them in a pinch. And its good on gas almost 28 mpg v6 cant beat it. Don't knock one till you drive one you don't know what your missing! Love em

1994 Volkswagen Corrado Hatchback SLC 2dr Coupe


Review

Very fun car. I've experienced some problems with the cooling system, but those have been fixed by putting in a lower temp fan switch and a different thermostat. Performance is good. It's not as fast as some of the newer sports cars buts it's still a runner.


Best Features

Stylish looks. Very comfortable. Very powerful engine with a lot of potential


Worst Features

Cooling issues, improved air intake hose

1994 Volkswagen Corrado Hatchback SLC 2dr Coupe


Review

First off, don't believe the TMV that edmunds shows for this car. A well kept example of any Corrado will bring close to $6k. Deals can be found, but be prepared to dump lots of money into maintenance. Look for leaking head gasket, timing chains, sunroof operation, cracked fog lights, leaking plastic coolant components, automatic seat belt operation, heater core leaking, and countless other little issues but these cars are 14 years old. Note that I do all my own maintenance and intend to keep this car until I die!! There is nothing like the "poor man's Porsche"!! You will get lots looks while driving and people asking what year it is!


Best Features

Speed activated rear spoiler is very cool. 2.8 L VR6 has tons of power (174 hp 178 ft/lbs) and still gets me 28 mpg on the highway! And there is NOTHING like the sound of the V-Yarr!! Overall just a unique, somewhat rare (only 500 1994 models sold in the US), sexy piece of German automotive history!!


Worst Features

Too late for factory improvements, but I've modified the suspension (coil overs, sway, & stress bars), poly engine and suspension mounts, lsd in the tranny, short shifter kit, 268 cams and chip, 2.9 L clone intake manifold, b4 passat moon roof, and lots of little things that are personal.
