2002 Volkswagen GTI VR6 2dr Hatchback (2.8L 6cyl 6M)


I went looking for a used BMW M3 or
Audi S4 and was dissappointed by
availability around $30-$33k. Walked
into VW and saw the newest 200HP VR6
and immediately asked for a test drive.
Sadly, only a 1.8L Turbo was available.
Within 2 hours, I had signed to buy the
next VR6 coming into the lot
thinking, "well if the 1.8 hums,
imagine how a v6 will perform!" I was
not at all dissappointed by my decision
especially considering I was ready to
buy a used car and walked away with a
brand new one.

Best Features

Wide aggressive stance, great wheels, enough room for golf clubs (barely), great leather interior, sporty clutch, and seeing the surprise on people's faces when you blow by them off the line or on the highway.

Worst Features

Cup holder is positioned in the worse possible place...Right where you put CDs into the stereo! I can live with it though.
