Think twice before getting sucked in!

1998 Volkswagen GTI VR6 2dr Hatchback


I purchased a GTI in 99' and it gave
me nothing but problems. The car is
fun to drive(needs stiffer suspension)
and does have many features not
available on similar priced cars;
however, reliability is horrible and
the cost of maintenance will make you
want to kill yourself! The
majority of the car is made in Brazil
not Germany (shoddy workmanship)and
the engine is expensive to maintain
($400+ for a tune-up and $40+ for an
oil change). I spent over $6000 in
two years, thank god for the extended
warranty. (there's a reason Volks
extended their warranty)

Best Features

Powerful engine Loads of features Stereo is excellent (Monsoon Package)

Worst Features

Expensive to maintain, needs stiffer suspension, serious reliability issues, poor workmanship.
