2003 Volkswagen GTI VR6 2dr Hatchback (2.8L 6cyl 6M)


What an improvement from the 12V
platform. Car is still VERY early in
it's mileage as I am still breaking it
in, but it is VERY fast- watch out 1.8
turbos. Engine is buttery smooth, and
the new 6-speed is a million years
ahead of the old rubbery, sloppy 5-
speed. Torque is plentyful down low,
and the car just pulls and pulls all
the way to redline. An incredibly fun
car to drive, and a very comfortable

Best Features

- Engine, Engine, Engine! - 6-speed - Monsoon bass issues seemes to be resolved. - Window regulators are NOW METAL!!! No more falling windows. - Typical Euro styling

Worst Features

- FIX THE FREAKIN CUPHOLDERS!!!!!! Worst design/placement I've ever dealt with. - Gas mileage not quite up to par, but may be driving habits. - 2800 miles, and already some very small but annoying squeaks and rattles that the dealership "cannot reproduce."
