1997 Volkswagen GTI VR6 Driver's Edition 2dr Hatchback

Review

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 !!!

Favorite Features

The VR6 power and the Driver addition trim package is sportier looking.

Suggested Improvements

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!
