1998 Volkswagen GTI 2dr Hatchback


I've owned my '98 GTI VR6 for one year now and have loved it! When purchased it had just hit 100,000 miles but was well maintained. I have since put 40,000 more on it without the first bit of trouble. I did however have a minor accident a couple months after buying it causing me to replace some suspension components. I chose to upgrade with Bilstein struts and lowering springs. I also added an intake and chip. Even with the mods & 17" wheels I still get around 25 mpg city / hwy. I would suggest this car to any sport enthusiast. However bear in mind it is not the quietest car inside or out. So if you dont mind the occasional squeak GO FOR IT!

Best Features

The VR6 engine! Also, I like the lines on these cars they just look clean. They don't look too flashy or "import tuner" but when you blow by the guy in the Mustang heads turn!

Worst Features

I think the car is great but it could always be a little faster or handle a little better. All that can be change for a couple extra thousand dollars though.
