2004 Volkswagen R32 Hatchback 2dr Hatchback (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This is absolutely the best car I have
ever owned. I have previously owned
other performance compacts such as the
Integra GS-R, Integra Type-R & RSX Type-
S, but this car is in its own class.
AWD is great for the winter and the
near 250hp will sure to keep you awake
at the wheel. Drive one and you will
understand....


Best Features

Attention to Detail by Volkswagen


Worst Features

Should have included a Winter Wheel/Tire package with car or available as an option.

Review

Alot of people buy cars based on 0-60
times.They don't think about
comfort,reliability,or
practicality.Usually when you buy a car
you need to commute in it.Which means
you need a certain amount of luxury.I
test drove the EVO and STi and they
very well may have faster 0-60
times,they have nowhere near the
comfort,reliability,or practicallity
that the R32 has.All in all this car
just plain out performes the
competition.


Best Features

My favorite featuresof this car are;4- motion all wheel drive,3.2 liter V- 6,and the smooth shifting 6-speed transmission.


Worst Features

Offer so kind of turbo or super charger package on top of the allready potent 240 horsepower V-6.

Review

I was looking into buying a Subaru WRX
STI, but after two test drives in each
and reading as many
Road&Track,Car&Driver,and any other
info I could find I desided to go with
the R32. I traded in my 2003 GTI VR6
that had 29,000 miles on it. That was a
great car but this is a whole new
beast. Once you own an all wheel drive
there is just no going back. This car
handles like a dream, the seats are the
best I've ever been in. Cabin is put
together very well and the pipes are
crazy. The climit control is awsome,
heated seats are so sweet on those cold
winter days. I live in the central
valley of California so these tire are
the best. If there was one thing I
would change(give me a spare tire)!!!!!


Best Features

The great tone of the pipes, seats, brakes,tires,climit control,the 4motion all wheel drive, 240HP,shifter and all the other little goodies....


Worst Features

More power,less weight,spare tire, better head lights,turbo, did I say more power...:-)

Review

Don't know what to say, really. I'm
speechless about the performance and
the looks of this car. I'm falling in
love over and over every day I drive
the R32. BUY ONE WHILE YOU STILL
CAN!!!!!!


Best Features

I love the color, I got the blue one. I can't narrow anything to a specific feature I favor. I love the whole car as it is.


Worst Features

Not known at this time.

Review

The VW R32 cant be beat when it comes
to $:options. The cars it competes
against may be faster, but do not come
close to the fit and finish and
standard options of the R32.


Best Features

Quicker than you realize 0-60 in 5.9 seconds, high 13 second to low 14 second 1/4 mile. Quick handling characteristics. Exhaust note that is second to none.


Worst Features

More power. Koenig seats start to wear quickly if your not careful getting in and out. A real spare tire. Lose some weight.
