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


This car is a blast to drive! If you prefer a cushy, no bumps, no effort type of drive, this car is not for you. If you love to drive a car for the shear enjoyment of driving, I think that you would be hard pressed to find a comparable car for the money. The handling is quick and precise, and the VR6 provides power whenever you need it. Some reviewers haven't liked the Monsoon sound system, but I definitely do. The jury is still out for me in terms of how well it will hold up, and I haven't been impressed by the service so far. I have to admit that I worried that it was assembled in Brazil, but so far, so good.

Best Features

VR6 guts, 6-speed trannie, Monsoon stereo, exterior styling, 17" wheels, simple yet elegant layout.

Worst Features

Build the car in Germany, I think that more people would buy it. And if only Volkswagen could provide Lexus-quality service...
