1997 Volkswagen GTI VR6 Driver's Edition 2dr Hatchback


I purchased it new 5 years ago and I
loved it (91,000 miles). It's sporty,
quick in comparison to other cars in
it's class ('97). Nice standand
features. Fun to drive.

Biggest draw back... the engine caught
fire and was a total loss !!!

Best Features

The VR6 power and the Driver addition trim package is sportier looking.

Worst Features

Heated seats are not available with the leather package. The door locks freeze up quite often. Both front seat adjusters broke. Generally parts seem expensive. Include a fire extinguisher!
