1998 Volkswagen GTI VR6 2dr Hatchback

Review

This is my third VW and second VR6. The 98 GTI with the VR6 is so much fun to drive. And the sound of the V6 makes you drive without the radio and yearn for the light to turn green. There always seems to be a few minor rattles inside of all the VW's I have owned, but outside of that, the car is a blast to drive. The brakes on the VR6 will stop you quickly. The 11.3" rotors upfront hint at what this car is built to do... shock and amaze BMW's, Mustangs etc. And to round out the package, you get the utility of a hatchback. I consider this a true SPORT utility vehicle.

Favorite Features

TORQUE, Stock Exhaust sound, brakes. Radio is located high in the dash and the climate controls are simple to use.

Suggested Improvements

Shifter could be less "notchy" with shorter throws.
