Written on: 18/01/2005 by Skee (2 reviews written)

Volkswagen Corrado VR6 - Looking dated but still the daddy of the V6 pack, where did Audi, Alfa et al get inspired for there 3.2 v6's? the Corrado!! Sounds great, goes well, admittedly is a tad heavy on fuel unless you drive it softly, but you can't!! LUUURVE the sound of the engine, and if you buy a car like this you dont care about the fuel, you wont be a lentil eating sandal wearer who thinks of environmental issues anyway, just buy one, you'l' love it!… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/04/2004 by CorradoVR6T (1 review written)

Ive had my Volkswagen Corrado VR6 for 2 years now, ive always been a lover of this great looking car since the day I saw a sweet VR6 storm punch it up my road, I turned round and thought ive never heard anything sound so sweet and I had to get one.
I had a Renualt 19 16v with Hill power stage before, and I thought that was pokey, but it seems pretty slow now, the Corrado is something else the power delivery is so smooth all the way through.

Written on: 22/07/2010

In 1995 I debated whether to get a Corrado for too long. All Storms sold out very quickly but I managed to buy a new 'standard' VR6 in March 1996. Never regretted it - but it hasn't been cheap to maintain now that car has covered 140,000 miles. Engine still pulls really well - Mobil 1 oil always used from new. A great all-round drive despite front-end being a bit heavy. Kept car standard as this will be desirable IF one day it gets sold. That will be a sad day indeed. Well worth sticking to… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/11/2008

The Corrado is definitely a classic car to own, to buy a decent one that has not been thrashed or seriously messed around with is somewhat hard to do.
If you own a decent one and can afford to keep it then I think within in time they will be come a major classic.
They say that the Corrado are few and far between, I find this hard to believe, okay so they are not roaming around in droves but hey, on no less then four occasions in one day I had flashing lights and waves from other Corrado… Read Full Review

The Volkswagen Corrado is a low down sporty car with great looks and nice bucket style seats with pretty good handling. Mine was a 1.8 16v and had seen a hard life. It had over-heating problem, head gasket problem, brake problems you name it I had the problem. I'm not saying they are all like mine was but be careful who has been driving it before… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/07/2005 by ejs2nd (1 review written)

This is my second Volkswagen Corrado VR6. I started off with an 85 Scirocco. Absolutely loved the car. Drove it till I blew a rod. My mechanic had a 1990 Corrado G60 for sale. Test drove it and thought "Wow! this car feels even better than the Scirocco. "Took care of that car and was planning to keep it for a while. I had just replaced the heater-core ($1,700.00) when my mechanic called and told me he had a near mint 1993 VR 6 with 122,000 mi. on it.

Again, I test drove the 1993, and… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/05/2005 by screw bird (1 review written)

This Volkswagen Corrado VR6 is my fisrt car. I was actually regretting getting the Corrado I got because of the previouse owners horrible relationship with the car. Duct tape, and electrical tape are all over, and connections are loose, and not pluged. However, when I drive it all the problems are so far away that I am more than thrilled I bought this car. She's more to me than that. She is my sancutary and my confidant. I love the way she sounds, and handles. I love it when all the other boys… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/09/2004 by samm (4 reviews written)

Just bought a Volkswagen Corrado VR6 and drove my first 50 miles which has definitley confirmed that I am happy with the car. I have wanted this car since I was a teenager because of it's looks alone and was not disappointed with the performance. This car is deceptive in that it is faster than it feels which is a sure good sign.
Having owned a lightly modified 205 1.9 for 3 years I'm sure the handling is better (as well as the performance but I suppose that is obvious) I have also driven most… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/07/2004 by G60 Dude (1 review written)

The Volkswagen Corrado VR6 is an amazing sports car! It's my first car, and I've only had it for 4 months, but so far I'm so excited about it. I can't wait to modify it (she's mostly stock) I've had to replace the heater core :( and the CV boots. Other than that though, I am impressed! Why doesn't VW make another one like it??? I love the speed-activated spoiler and the looks I'm going to get (I haven't driven it all that much). The quality of it is excellent and way ahead of its time… Read Full Review

I purchased my Volkswagen Corrado VR6 storm november 2003,
The moment I drove it before I exchanged the money, I was in love.
I love to drive it but I dont want the miles to go up!
It has just done 100k!!!!
i have had to change the radiator and passenger window and window motor. These are the only things that have had to do (and tyres).
I would recommend a corrado vr6 to anybody!!!!!
Classic, cool, collectable!… Read Full Review

I bought my first Volkswagen Corrado VR6 Sports Car in 2001 and it has been the best car I have ever owned due to the comfort levels and performance. It brings a smile to my face every time I see it. It's also one of those cars you can't help but look back at once you've parked it up. It's suprisingly economical and I average around 30mpg. I had to move to the USA last year due to my job changing and I hunted around for about a month looking at other cars eventually deciding on a Toyota Celica… Read Full Review

Bradfordman's Response to adamfarrow's Review

Written on: 15/09/2004

Interested in Adams comments as I'm currently beginning a search for a decent VR6 [or SRC as they are called in the US]
<br>I live in Texas 6 months of the year and will be returning there from England shortly.
<br>I looked at several VR6's when I was last there and found that they really were pretty sad - either thrashed or poorly maintained [or both]
<br>If Adam should read this he may like to contact me, I may be interested in his one - I understand his [and his wife's] feelings!
<br>He can contact me at grarus@aol.com.

Though speed isn't everything, there aren't many cars that will out perform the Volkswagen Corrado VR6.

I feel the Corrado VR6 is already a classic!

It's lines and shape, give it an awesome presence on the road, and if left unattended attracts an enormous amount of attention. If often have to educate the unknowing that the Corrado is not a reshaped Golf, and Karmman and not VW built it"… Read Full Review

I bought my VW Corrado VR6 in December 2003 just after Top Gear featured it. I had been on the hunt for one for about 4 months previous to this and was panicking about the prices going through the roof! Full VAG service history, 41K on the clock and one previous owner. The R.A.C. did a full check and found.... a split in the rear wiper blade! The deal was done and another VW added to the stable. Poor old Scirocco.
It was a pig to get insured as no paperwork was supplied for the immobiliser. Be… Read Full Review

I own a 60k mile 94 VW Corrado VR6 with a/con and leather.I,ve had a Golf VR6 and a Clio Williams but this far out performs both. A few snags with the smell of petrol coming into the cabin and a fuel leak all over my drive. Fairly practical for myself, wife and two kids considering its a coupe.Interior build quality not up to MK2 Golf standard and the zip went on the arm rest. Door handles are weak and cracked fogs a regular occurance.
I am now on the look out for a Storm but it has to be in… Read Full Review

Intereesting that you mention the petrol smell. I have a golf VR6 which smells of petrol on a cold start, presumably the choke causes it to run too rich. How did you get your problem resolved???
