1995 Volkswagen GTI VR6 2dr Hatchback

Review

The VR6 has good power and torque. Clutch is smooth. However, I will not recommend this car. A lot of stupid expensive quirky things go wrong with this car. 1)power window regulators go bad 2)central locking system freezes up in the winter, it effects the power doors, gas filler door, and trunk lid 3) sunroof freezes up, don't bother fixing it it will malfunction again 4)gauge cluster will eventually malfunction, i.e. tachometer&lights, replacement cluster cannot be set to correct mileage 5)electric system,factory alarm will come on mysteriously 6)tie rods, CV joints, axles, and steering components don't last long.

Favorite Features

A/C is ice cold, heater is scorching hot, interior is very roomy and ergonomic. VR6 engine uses a timing chain, basically "no maintenance" as long as it is driven sanely.

Suggested Improvements

Only buy a VW made in Germany or has been only owned by 1 caring owner.
