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

Review

All I can say is that my wife thinks the ride is excellent, but I'm already planning on doing a suspension upgrade. Engine is excellent. Plenty of power for this little car and it sure loves to go. The engine by far out does the handling, but that can be fixed easily, although for for between $1-2K.

Favorite Features

Engine, interior comfort. Feel of the material and pedal placement. Fairly nice stereo and very convienent hatch back. Great car for the money.

Suggested Improvements

Better suspension, and softer tires. Basically the R32 would do nicely and round off well what little this GTI VR6 is lacking, along with AWD and 237 HP.
