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

Review

I'm the second owner of this car and have had it a little over a year. It has no gaps in the service history, and has always been dealer-serviced. So far, the fuse box, both electric fans, and the transmission have failed (bearing). Total cost not covered under warranty? $4,000. My Ford Maverick was more reliable than this car! My Subaru has 130,000 miles on it and has never had a part fail!! Save yourself, and don't buy this or any other VW. For God's sake it's the 21st Century and they can't make a transmission last 65,000 miles!!!

Favorite Features

The look, feel, and drive.

Suggested Improvements

Make an engine and transmission that will last over 100k with regular maintenance. Warranty your drivetrain to 100k like GM and Hyundai. You should be ashamed of yourselves.
