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

Review

What an improvement from the 12V platform. Car is still VERY early in it's mileage as I am still breaking it in, but it is VERY fast- watch out 1.8 turbos. Engine is buttery smooth, and the new 6-speed is a million years ahead of the old rubbery, sloppy 5- speed. Torque is plentyful down low, and the car just pulls and pulls all the way to redline. An incredibly fun car to drive, and a very comfortable cruiser.

Best Features

- Engine, Engine, Engine! - 6-speed - Monsoon bass issues seemes to be resolved. - Window regulators are NOW METAL!!! No more falling windows. - Typical Euro styling

Worst Features

- FIX THE FREAKIN CUPHOLDERS!!!!!! Worst design/placement I've ever dealt with. - Gas mileage not quite up to par, but may be driving habits. - 2800 miles, and already some very small but annoying squeaks and rattles that the dealership "cannot reproduce."
