It's no kid's car
By Steven A on


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


The R32 feels like a car VW built just
for me. I purchased my first GTI is
1985 and I loved that car. I took the
long way home every chance I had. This
car is everything that first GTI was
and more, way more. There are many
vehicles in it's price range but none
have the the same performance and
exclusivity that the R32 does. I could
have paid less and I could have paid
more but I couldn't have gotten more
for less. The R32 is VW's S4. It's that
good. Compared to the Japanese
competition neither felt like they were
right for me just too Pep Boys/Fast and
Furious. The R32 simply is so much more
refined they don't feel like they are
direct competition to it.

Best Features

The engine is this car. It pulls hard from idle on up in a steady building rush and nothing this side of a M3 sounds this good. The handling is unreal and the ride is amazing considering the suspension and tire package.

Worst Features

The only thing VW could do is push more ponies from this engine. If they do it would all but make this car untouchable.
