R32: Incredible Fun!
By tgrundke on
Vehicle
2004 Volkswagen R32 2dr Hatchback (3.2L 6cyl 6M)
Review
Start this car up and the exhaust note on ignition will blow you away. Move the tach up past 3800 RPMs and the growl is beautiful. This car has sickening amounts of torque and traction and body lean and roll are very well controlled. The ride is stiff, but never uncomfortable and it is wonderfully balanced. The shifter on this vehicle is the best that Volkswagen has ever placed in a standard production vehicle and compares very well with those from BMW and Honda. In short: this car is too much fun.
Favorite Features
Torque, torque, and more torque. Excellent steering wheel, shift/clutch design and wonderful suspension balance.
Suggested Improvements
What, no xenon headlights on a $30,000.00 car? The only other minor gripes would be lack of a 6-disc in dash CD and lessened cargo room due to the independent suspension/4Motion setup. Good trade-offs, in my opinion.
