2004 Volkswagen GTI VR6 2dr Hatchback (2.8L 6cyl 6M)

Review

i bought my 2004 VW GTI with some hesitation, I was concerned about the reliability. It has had some minor issues with reliability in the electrical department. I knew going in too that this car takes premium gas. This is not a great thing with a car that averages 19-24 mpg and the current cost of gas. Having said this, I do declare, that this car is wonderful. It is not a hot rod, but it is very fun. if I need the horses or torque, they are there. It is very solid, and the most comfortable car that I have ever owned. The hatchback is great, easy access and roomy. I don't see myself coming and going on the highways and byways of this town. I strongly recommend this funky little car.

Best Features

The engine is smooth and quiet. The comfort of the front seats over long distances is great. The GTI has a very solid ride.

Worst Features

VW needs to continue to improve its electrical reliability. Also, the standard transmission is nowhere near as slick as the ones that are available in Japanese cars.
