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

Review

I would have been happier with a GTI VR6 and $8000 in my pocket! My third VW, the R32 seduced me with its exhaust rumble, and impressive fit and finish. The Koenig seats are comfortable but awkward to get into and difficult to fold. Considering the 400 hp Vette gets better mileage, I'm disappointed. Worst of all, I've already ruined two $200 tires by hitting minor highway imperfections! The dimwit who eliminated the spare tire should be fired or better yet, shot! After spending an extra $1000 for A/S performance tires (and a spare that takes up trunk space), I'm still not happy. Looking for potholes gets old. Anybody want a slightly used R32?
