1996 Volkswagen GTI VR6 2dr Hatchback
I bought my GTI VR6 in June of 1996 and
it has been great. The performance,
handling and acceleration are
exceptional. Throaty engine roar
sounds like a race car. 91,000
miles and still going strong. Cargo
capacity is excellent, especially w/
seats down. Contoured Seats add to the
driving experience, expecially when
cornering but can be tough on long
hauls. Mileage could be stronger but
that is the tradeoff for the V6
power. A fast, fun versatile
hatchback I recommend in a heartbeat.
Performance and handling. This car is
a lot of fun to drive. Trip computer --
hugely useful and fun.
Cup holders are designed for 12 ounce
cans and are poorly placed.
Glove compartment please.
Side mouldings need clamps or rivets.
The glue is pathetic.
