2002 Volkswagen GTI VR6 2dr Hatchback (2.8L 6cyl 6M)

Review

I went looking for a used BMW M3 or Audi S4 and was dissappointed by availability around $30-$33k. Walked into VW and saw the newest 200HP VR6 and immediately asked for a test drive. Sadly, only a 1.8L Turbo was available. Within 2 hours, I had signed to buy the next VR6 coming into the lot thinking, "well if the 1.8 hums, imagine how a v6 will perform!" I was not at all dissappointed by my decision especially considering I was ready to buy a used car and walked away with a brand new one.

Best Features

Wide aggressive stance, great wheels, enough room for golf clubs (barely), great leather interior, sporty clutch, and seeing the surprise on people's faces when you blow by them off the line or on the highway.

Worst Features

Cup holder is positioned in the worse possible place...Right where you put CDs into the stereo! I can live with it though.
