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

Review

Daily driver that is nearly as much fun as my Vette. Outstanding low end torque and acceleration. (No WRX-like turbo lag.) Very good steering and brakes/ better than a WRX/ not quite as good as SVT Focus, but combined with lux car quiet and ride, it beats them both. Monsoon has great bass. Firm, comfortable, high bolstered sport seats with excellent heaters. Many items from Audi parts bin. No reliability issues at all. A practical mini-Vette.

Favorite Features

Right now, grin inducing torque. Sharp handling balanced with lux ride. Fit, finish and quality. Long warranty.

Suggested Improvements

OK, so cupholders are poorly located. Get a couple Spillmaster Juniors from Wal Mart.
