1990 Volkswagen Corrado G60 1.8 Supercharged
Beautiful, if only VW built it longer
Air Conditioning needed new condenser and drier. at 55,000 miles.
Lost all engine coolant at 55,030 miles. Freeze plugs in engine block needed replacing at a few pennies for each of the three - labour was 3 hours though!
Bought car in Germany. Disappointed by top speed only around 130mph due to low top gear for US spec car. Had top gear changed to the Golf diesel's and the charger rebuilt to RS spec and minor work on electronics, both of which result in a lot more pep. Acceleration now very quick. Top speed on German autobahn was off the 140mph speedo at 6,500 revs. Top gear now gives 25mph/1,000 revs so top speed a little over 160mph. Not bad for a 1.8 litre engine... he he...
Will get a 1995 VR6 when I return to Germany. These have airbags just in case.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
