Pros: Acceleration/Power, Handling/Roadholding, Braking, Rare/Unique Cons: Repair Costs, Repair Difficulty Summary: I fell in love with this car the first time I drove it. The Corrado SLC is a blast to drive. Sounds great even stock. The steering is precise, it's very grippy, the engine has good torque over a wide range and the braking is very good. For a stock 93 car it has lots of power & great handling. Parts are a bit expensive. Their are common Corrado VR6 problems. Ive had the pleasure of dealing with most ;) Heater core fails, Passenger window problems, Sun roof fails, Spoiler fails, Rear hatch gets stuck, Door handles get loose, Head lamp switch fails, Fog lights crack & burn out often, ABS light stays on... this is a high maintenance car. The G60's are the same if not more to maintain. Most of these things are just annoying and come with time & use. With that being said the engine and trans are very reliable. It handles great. Its just the cost of Labor and Parts $$$. I would recommend this vehicle with caution. This car is not for everyone. If you the time, MONEY, & passion, then by all means get your self this rare and unique modern classic.

I can't rave enough within this limited size review. Great performance, attention grabbing looks, fits like a glove and handles like a dream. Only a few available because if you have one it's like a great investment you get to have fun driving. I only gave a "4" for interior design and features but only because of the automatic shoulder seatbelt. I'd rate this car a 10 on value for the money if I could.

corrado is a great handling car w/ smooth and powereful V6. i enjoy driving it more than my integra. it's also nicely stlyled but it cost a lot to upkeep and i have had lots of electrical problems including annoying things as the radio, sunroof, and cruise control. if vw could get this right i would recommend this car.
