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

Review

There is no substitute for a fully equipped GTI. While the R32 is a little much for most drivers, the Vr6 offers the experienced driver power and comfort, while showing taste and refinement missing from Japanese and American sport hatchbacks. This car is most certainly not a toy, and is absolutely inappropriate for a first car. This car gives incredible feedback, and a driver must have enough experience to be able to interpret what the car is telling him to operate this one safely. Having owned each previous version of the GTI, I can say that this is decidedly familiar, yet greatly improved. Drivers of MkIII VW's who miss the hard sporty suspension of last generation will LOVE this car.

Favorite Features

Auto Dimming Mirror Leather Seats (Absolutely Essential) Vr6 Engine Sunroof Wheels 6 Speed Gearbox Instant street credibility-nothing to prove. Everyone knows the GTI.

Suggested Improvements

None. Perfectly balanced for a daily driver with the ability to gallop for a bit of fun.
