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


All I can say is that my wife thinks
the ride is excellent, but I'm already
planning on doing a suspension
upgrade. Engine is excellent. Plenty
of power for this little car and it
sure loves to go. The engine by far
out does the handling, but that can be
fixed easily, although for for between

Best Features

Engine, interior comfort. Feel of the material and pedal placement. Fairly nice stereo and very convienent hatch back. Great car for the money.

Worst Features

Better suspension, and softer tires. Basically the R32 would do nicely and round off well what little this GTI VR6 is lacking, along with AWD and 237 HP.
