2008 Volkswagen R32 2dr Hatchback AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6AM)

Review

Follow up from Sep 2008 when I bought it w/ 12k miles. I now have 42k on this car and it remains rock solid. Over time I've gotten very used to getting the most out of it without killing gas mileage. It's best on long twisty road and takes 20 mph S-turns at 60-70 mph w/o even thinking about it and is so much fun to drive. I get 23 combined and 26 highway MPG but still think it needs a taller 6th gear. It's hard to find a better AWD car. AWD and DSG maintenance is spendy and only had a strut go bad. With all that said I wonder what it would do with an additional 100 hp.

Best Features

Engine, Torque, Interior Styling, ride, DSG is quick in sport and triptronic

Worst Features

Nav, Ipod, Bluetooth, paddle shifters are hard to reach during turns. Fog lamps, What it could do with 350 HP?
