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


Absolutely love the car. Small fit and
finish items are not quite on par with
the care of in designing the rest of
the vehicle. E-brake button fell off,
Cover for seat mechanism fell off.
Lever for moving seat forward unhinged,
but surprisingly went back in place with
minor ease. I consider all of this
minor as the car is still under warranty
and this items are non-mechanical. All
of the special options for the car work
like a dream. Heated seats, heated
mirrors, climate control, 4Motion,
self-dimming rear-view mirror has all
been used extensively and no failures
noted to date. This is a powerful car
and is dangerous to the unexperienced

Best Features

Look & Feel that separate it from other Golf/GTI models. 6-Speed with power from the start. AWD and airbags all around

Worst Features

Parts that get heavy use should not be plastic (i.e., e-brake components, lever to move seat in and out of position, etc.)
