Acceleration/Power, Handling/Roadholding, Braking, Rare/Unique
Repair Costs, Repair Difficulty
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.
