Fun - But expensive to maintain
By Larry Williams on
1998 Volkswagen GTI VR6 2dr Hatchback
Don't misread me, this is a FUN car to
drive. This car is fast and handles
like a slot car.
The hatch is HUGE, and I've carried
items of unbelievable size back there.
Reliability is only so-so. I've had
numerous problems with the radio, the
leather has peeled away from both doors
On the more serious side, I've spent
over $2000 in the last two years
replacing various items that have
failed. (Ignition coil, fuel injector,
thermostat, etc.) Routine maintenance
will cost you a bundle.
If you are on a tight budget, I'd
advise looking elsewhere.
