2008 Volkswagen R32 User Reviews
- No trim specified for this review
- Sturdy, safety, transmission is great compared to older tiptronic.
- poor mileage/small tank, no fog lights, lacks standard features. Center lights not for USA
The items they cut out such as fog lights, garage door buttons, power driver/passenger seat, glove box light,....you won't care much about when you are tucked in, adjusted and driving. But c'mon, these are such standard type items, that are probably in the GTI's, that it's an insult. Sure the engine and trans and AWD are great, and are proven products. Some reviewers think they are not sporty enough. I think for this car they are pretty good. The ride is a little harsh, with the short wheel base, and the sport suspension and 18's. The true handling of the car isn't that great. I guess the high center of gravity, added to the tires don't make this a true sports car in the handling/suspension department. Be careful of potholes, I have already had 2 tires bust sidewalls when hitting Los Angeles county approved construction zone potholes. It would be nice to have a cd changer to use at the same time as the Navigation unit. The ipod integration is pretty good, however, it would be nicer to have better control over your songs and playlists. Every few weeks my Sirius radio settings evaporate and I have to reprogram my stations in. The front end is slightly low, so you have to roll slowly in and out of driveways.
