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

Review

Overall, this is a great car. The engine is smooth and powerful. And the car feels very solid. A little too much performance is sacrificed for comfort.

Favorite Features

24v VR6 is smooth, torquey and sounds amazing with a better exhaust system. 6 speed has great gear ratios. 3 spoke leather wrapped steeringis very sporty, Heated seats. Not as common as most Japanese hatches - esp. the vr6 model.

Suggested Improvements

4X4 suspension is too soft to make good use of the power and ride height is too high. Needs to go on a diet. Tiny rear discs look silly. Throttle response not so great. Requires aftermarket suspension, exhaust and chip to unleash its full potential. Black headliner would be nice.
