Fun ride, a few things to be aware of...

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


Absolutely love my new R32 but a few things to know during test drives. Note that the door speakers do rattle with moderate to high bass music. Also, there is a electric buzzing noise produced by the fuel pump coming from passenger side rear (listen for it at idle). If you can get over those two, and the 19 mpg fuel economy...this is a fun car. The note on the exhaust sounds similar to the BMW 330 at idle and M3 with full throttle. I got mine for $31,995 (with no Nav) but I'm sure you could do much better.

Best Features

The exhaust note...the deep hum and raspy sound at throttle screams softly into one's ears.

Worst Features

Better fuel economy, Better speakers, eliminate fuel pump noise, and increase the horsepower without making the car any heavier. One last improvement, hope VW improves their NAV system overall.
