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


I'm only 27 yrs old, but have gone through cars like water because i suffer from, "Gotta have the next thing-itis", and yeah, it's terminal. But anywho, this little car has got to be one of the best values for any one who REALLY loves to drive, and drive fast. This car fells uber strong 1st through 3rd gear, and the higher gears aren't too shabby either. (In 3rd at 6500 RPM, you're doing 85mph) The gas mileage isn't great if you stay in it, but is capable of getting 26 mpg or so on interstate. The 6 spd manual is an absolute dream to drive, takes learning to drive it right, but when you and the car agree, it's a beautiful thing. Summary: The German's build driver's cars.

Best Features

Interior design is incredible, Dash lights, Punchy V6, Handling.

Worst Features

Gas mileage could be improved, a few creaks and noises that are normal for a German made car.
