1998 Volkswagen GTI VR6 2dr Hatchback

Review

Bought this car out of loyalty to the VW marque. Felt it was the best option for me as I have no kids to tote around. Performance was excellent, handled decently, and stopped well. Build quality was high, but had problems with the pinch protector on the power windows, and the seat leather on the bolsters wore out after 1 year. Sold the car due to insurance cost (age and sex plus VR6 made it fairly expensive), and the somewhat poor gas mileage. Would recommend as a sporty, fun commuter if you can resist the desire to speed!!

Best Features

Whoomp of the VR6 when shifting from first to second, traction control, ABS, comfortable semi-sporty seats, and sunroof for sunny days.

Worst Features

MORE POWER, and sportier suspension.
