2003 Volkswagen GTI VR6 2dr Hatchback (2.8L 6cyl 6M)

Review

Good price on my VR6. Unlike the turbo (which I also owned) broad power range and decent torque. However, handling is pretty sloppy stock, with poor understeer. Suspension roll is also fairly iffy, and the stick linkage is loose/imprecise. Number one performance problem with GTIs is WEIGHT. They weigh too much for their size, and too much weight in the front. Just being realistic folks. That said, for the price it's a good performer, and it's the only performer of its class hatchback wise.

Best Features

Hatchback.

Worst Features

Fix weight distribution and make it lighter! A few interior bits could use a quality boost.
