2008 Volkswagen R32 2dr Hatchback AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6AM)


I am the #1 fan of VW/Audi vehicles and have owned both brands for years. They both make world class vehicles. VW has hit a home run with the R32. I just took possession of the car and the driving experience is incredible. It has all the safety option you need: ABS, AWD, 6 airbags, ESP, seat belt pretensioners, and the list goes on and on. The build and quality in unsurpassed. The AWD and the VR rated tires make this a great handling car. The interior is plush and well thought out. Although I would have like to see 300 hp, the 250 hp V6 engine is sufficient, unless you are racing the car. The car is rock solid throughout. i opted for the car without navigation.

Best Features

Blue paint, sound system, the security of having all the safety features, handling, DSG, firm seats, ease of driving, VR rated tires and 18" wheels, the fit and finish and the fact it's a VW.

Worst Features

Better radio screen, better navigation system, more horsepower, compass, power memory seats, manual transmissions.
