I love this car to death. I bought it brand new from the dealership and I've driven it only on real nice days in the summer. This car has great power, handles very well and is a real head turner with its bright blue color. I've only experienced minor problems with it but who doesn't with any car.
The color, the VR6 engine, the interior, pretty much everything about it.
VW's have a huge following for one very
important reason. they are great
cars. Get in one, and as soon as you
turn on the engine you will notice
something different. the car gives a
little feed back. This is the 2nd GTI
VR6 I have had, and my 5th VW in all.
All my other VW's have been flawless as
well. Do your maintenance, avoid the
high prices for repairs by the dealers,
and you will love your VW for a long
long time. This GTI has 145,000 Miles
on it. It has the original clutch,
timing chain, everything. I am 27,
which means I bought this car when I
was 22. So no this car has not been
Power, power and more power. this thing
has torque and horse power by the
boatload. Steering wheel gives
feedback, central locking, Comes
standard fuly loaded
Put an aftermarket Chip in it by GIAC.
it will boost power by alot, and it
will actually give you better Gas

I purchased it new 5 years ago and I
loved it (91,000 miles). It's sporty,
quick in comparison to other cars in
it's class ('97). Nice standand
features. Fun to drive.
Biggest draw back... the engine caught
fire and was a total loss !!!
The VR6 power and the Driver addition
trim package is sportier looking.
Heated seats are not available with
the leather package. The door locks
freeze up quite often. Both front seat
adjusters broke. Generally parts seem
expensive. Include a fire extinguisher!
