1998 Volkswagen GTI VR6 2dr Hatchback

Review

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 numerous times. 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.

Favorite Features

Hatch.

Suggested Improvements

Not up to Honda reliability by a long shot.
