I love my 2004 R32
By dpod4 on


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


I bought my R32 brand new in 2004 after test driving much more expensive cars.
Nothing compared.
I have owned my car 8 years.
I have pampered it (garaged in the winter, park it like it is a Ferrari, etc) and it looks brand new (kudos to VW for the Tornado Red paint holding up like it is showroom condition 8 years later).
I have not had one problem with it -- most trouble free car I have owned (compared to more expensive cars I have owned from BMW, Lexus, Mercedes, Audi, Acura).
And, more than any car (Lexus SC400 comes in a close second, and Toyota MR2 a distant third), this BY FAR is the most fun car I have owned.
Hard to describe, but 8 years later, I am more elated than day bought.

Best Features

handling, cornering, gestalt ability to feel one with the road, go-kart like sensibility, 6 speed manual, speakers if you replace the head unit, etc and i can fit a family of 5 in it!
