1995 volkswagen golf gti



The GTI returns with a vengeance after taking two years off -- based on the current-generation Golf, this pocket rocket has Volkswagen's 2.8-liter VR6 stuffed under its hood. Output is rated at 172 horsepower and 173 pound-feet of torque; the company says the GTI VR6 can go from zero to 60 mph in seven seconds flat. As before, the GTI rides on a sport-tuned version of the regular Golf suspension; a standard traction control system prevents its low-profile 205/50R15 Goodyear tires from slipping too much off the line. Standard equipment includes height-adjustable sport seats, a sunroof, a premium eight-speaker sound system and daytime running lights. The GTI meets 1997 side-impact standards, and its front seatbelts are height-adjustable and equipped with pre-tensioners.

Well I must say I only owned this car for a few months and I enjoy it a lot especially that I'm only 20 years old. Its pretty much for Young guys who enjoy whipping it hard shifting gears blasting down the freeway. The engine of the vr6 is not only a strong engine but a engine that sounds like a g35 on those lines, quite unique and impressive for a stock car with no modifications on the engine.

My VR6 172 HP 2-door has been a load of fun. The torquey 6 cylinder moves the car at low rpm easily and without the need to rev (Japanese) the motor but still tops-out @ 130 mph. Highway driving is FUN. I have been the original owner of my GTI. Maintenance costs have been about $3000 over the 198,000 miles I've driven the car. Items replaced: (2) wheel bearings $300 ea. (1set) shocks $200 I replaced, (2) water pumps $350 ea. (2) sets of breaks $150 ea. I replaced (easy job), (1) muffler $375 I replaced, (1) fuel pump $180 I replaced (super easy job), (3) emission devices $275 I replaced, and a variety of other small items $300. Bottom line, I would buy another VW GTI VR6.

I bought this car real cheep for $2800.00 It needs some work done to it. i guess its a common thing for VW to lose the function of their Window Motor, I had this problem. The engine is super strong and very fast. It get great gas milage for the power it has. One reason why i picked the GTI is becasue I mountain bike and if you fold down the rear seats you can easilly fit 2 mountian bikes in the rear. There is Plenty of room in this car. and comes with a MPG gauge as well as a outside Temp. and many other fetures. thanks JAKE

I put over 110K miles on this car in 3 years. Onlythings that I ever had to do was replace the ingnition coil, and the passenger door regulator for the power windows.

I have had this car for six year (bought '95 new leftover) and have only had one minor problem which was covered under the original dealer warranty. The vehicle has 146,500 well cared for miles and has been garaged for its existence. The brakes (pads only) were replaced within the last year and rotars did not need to be cut. I upgraded the suspension to bilstein and put an upper strut tie bar which helped to reduce some roll. I love this car.
