Luxury Golf, more practical than a TT
By vdub69 on


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


Since I've only had this car for almost
a week, reliability and quality is not
a question that can be answered yet.
For this reason, I'm giving it a
neutral rating. After 100,000 miles
I'll let you know how reliable it was
and how it holds together.

I bought this car partly because I see
it as a more practical(and less costly)
version of the Audi TT. All-wheel drive
(4-motion), similar engine, similar
chassis, great stereo, great interior.
This is a luxury car in Golf hatchback
clothing. Automatic climate control
seems to be working great.

Best Features

The rain sensor wipers which slow down or speed up with the intensity of the rain. Seat side bolsters on the optional leather seats feel great on the drive home from work. The leather steering wheel is the "Best". The tuned exhaust sounds great!

Worst Features

This is my opinion, but I think I would rather have four 17-inch rims and a 17- inch rim with a full size spare tire (which come in regular GTI's)than four 18-inch rims with no spare tire. Instead of a spare tire, you get a small electric air pump and liquid tire repair.
