2004 Volkswagen GTI VR6 2dr Hatchback (2.8L 6cyl 6M)


I bought this car after owning two GTIs
with the 1.8t engine. The VR6 gives the
car a completely different feel...much
more stable, but decidely heavier
through turns. The GTI is a fantastic
road car, fun to drive and very solid.
It's part sports car and part work

Best Features

The 6-speed tranny is smooth and the seats are very comfortable with lots of support. I love the body style. This car also has tremendous utility. You can flip down the rear seats and put a lawnmower in back if you need to.

Worst Features

Desperately needs a better sound system...the Monsoon just doesn't cut it. Stiffer shocks and springs. Interior design has shortcomings...cupholders interfere with radio, temp controls are too close to shifter, armrest is just poorly designed, period.
