Whether you want a little hot hatch, or a get around car that gets decent MPG the GTI Vr6 is a great candidate. I've been driving mine for two years so far, maintenance isn't hard, parts are reasonable, and the effort is rewarded every time you hop in and take it for a cruise. It is a blast to drive and really lets out a nice tone when you stomp on it. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one, or do whatever it takes to keep this thing running till I'm good and ready for a newer model! Fantastic car. Now for the few draw backs- Cup holders are difficult to use. Needs another gear, cruises a bit high for my liking. Interior is a little bland, but not THAT bad. The hatch loves to collect dirt and dust. Hard to find one that someone didn't "Modify"

I bought my gti vr6 used with 219k on it in really bad shape, it had no tranny fluid, no motor oil, old rotten spark plugs & wires, a muddy air filter, the only good thing was that it had some water & gas. i drove the car up to 5k after it started giving me issues, at first i thought the engine was dying on me but it was an annoying electric problem, this is my major concerne with this car, worst electrical system ever! that annoying check engine sign would come out every time, the alarm system is annoying, you lock the car & the alarm goes on, i would have to disconnect the battery for an hour for the whole electrical system to reset, also the power windows are the worst, the best thing you can do is swap them to manual & it will be sweet. just recently did a tune up & its running like if i pulled it out from the dealer, its running really smooth, also the stock suspension is not that great, feels like if the hot wheel was to flip in sharp turns, best thing is getting a lowering kit sport suspension, overall, confort is excellent for a 2dr hatchback & its also a really safe passanger car, handling, couldnt be better for a fwd, exterior design is nice & sporty, interior is ok, has plenty of cup holders except that it doesnt have a glove compartment which is really randomly dumb, features are basic, price, excellent performance car for the buck, & reliabity, you will never have engine problems with the vr6, its a really strong engine that can last forever, just give it its daily maintenance & you wont have any headaches, but if you dont you will have nightmares, those are all the consequences & the qualities of this babe
