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


This car is a blast to drive! If you
prefer a cushy, no bumps, no effort
type of drive, this car is not for
you. If you love to drive a car for
the shear enjoyment of driving, I
think that you would be hard pressed
to find a comparable car for the
money. The handling is quick and
precise, and the VR6 provides power
whenever you need it. Some reviewers
haven't liked the Monsoon sound
system, but I definitely do.
The jury is still out for me in terms
of how well it will hold up, and I
haven't been impressed by the service
so far. I have to admit that I worried
that it was assembled in Brazil, but
so far, so good.

Best Features

VR6 guts, 6-speed trannie, Monsoon stereo, exterior styling, 17" wheels, simple yet elegant layout.

Worst Features

Build the car in Germany, I think that more people would buy it. And if only Volkswagen could provide Lexus-quality service...
