2004 Volkswagen R32 2dr Hatchback (3.2L 6cyl 6M)

Review

I was in the market for a fun to drive sports car in the $30k price range. I was going to trade in my 01 Mustang GT which had plenty of after market go fast parts on it. I still wanted a car that accelerated strong but handled better than the Mustang. I test drove the STI and the Mits. Evo, liked them both, although I thought their interiors were cheap and 4 doors doesn’t look sporty. Then I drove the R32 and feel in love. It doesn’t have the acceleration of the Sti or Evo but makes up for it in build quality, refinement and overall style. After 1000 miles I clocked a 0 to 60 run of 6.4 sec (with my Escort G-Timer) and that was without a hard launch.

Favorite Features

The racing style leather Koenig seats and the dual exhaust sound our my favorite features.

Suggested Improvements

Could use a few more horsepower.
