I know cars, and Volkswagens build
quality has greatly improved in the
MKIV series. The VR6 has a great track
record + torque and HP. The build
quality, drivability, ergonomics and
looks are excellent. The wheels tend to
be a bit weak, so watch for potholes!
Manual trans. is the only way to go on
this car. If you are looking for a
sportier, classier, and cooler
alternative to a Toyota...then the GTI
VR6 is definately for you. Do be
prepared for mediocre dealership
service. I do most of the car work
myself anyway, and this car is a breeze
to work on! This car epitomizes all
that is great about German engineering.
Japan and the U.S. can't touch it!
Build quality, Torque + B.H.P.,
comfort, drivability, handling, and
absolutely the best bang for the
buck!!! After owning toyotas, Saabs,
Volvos, Pontiacs and even DeLoreans...I
am a VW fan for life!!!
Cup holders, lessen body roll when
cornering (stiffer suspension), wheel
strength, and dealership attitude and
service. Least complaints I have ever
had for a car!!!
