i have 51,500 miles on my corrado, all original. i love pretty much everything about it. only two complaints. no rear leg room, and not the best vw working parts, ( heater core went, ac needs recharge, temp gauge stop working). outside of that the car is a pleasure to drive. smooth vr6, pulls really strong, quite fast. the trans short gearing gets you up to speed quick. rubbery shifter feel but not so bad. seats are very comfortable. clutch is smooth and responsive. great driving position. cool looks, cool automatic wing, great engine note. an unmolested, low mile corrado is hard to part with.
This is the best car I've ever owned. Its sporty, fast and comfortable it puts my V8 muscle/sports cars to shame. Anyone looking for fuel economy in a sports car needs to rethink their idea on a sports car otherwise it handles unbelievably and it surprises even the most anti-VW people.
This Corrado is the 6th VW I have owned (3rd with a VR6) and I dreamed about owning an SLC VR6 since I was a little girl. I finally got my hands on this black on velour 1992, and it has been great. This car is so solidly built that it doesn't even rattle when I drive it 100 mph! The VR6 pulls strong and you're reading the mileage right: 263k! I love the sport seats (heated too), and it's fun to show people the speed-sensitive spoiler (still works!). It's also great to own such a rare VW that has a lot of cachet and nostalgic value. Most people don't even know what a Corrado is or think it's a Scirocco, but those who know the Corrado know greatness! I can't wait for more good times with him.
the corrado is a fun car to drive is fast and handle great, the fuel economy is a not that great but none with a vR6 is or even V8 that dont give the same power as this car. if you have a chance to drive one you will fall in love with it.
