1992 Volkswagen Corrado SLC 2.8 VR6
Very fast wheels.... but at some cost
Oh boy... how do I start...
The engine was replaced under warranty.
Numerous shorts - running lights don't work.
Sunroof quit working.
Water pump went.
After a service at the local dealer - the intake cam gear fell off (!!!) which ended up costing me new valves & cams (the end of the intake cam was ruined), the worst part is I had to pay for it!!!
At the present moment it will not start - even after replacing the starter, battery and cables, and the ignition switch (which was just replaced 2 years ago).
I am almost embarrassed to admit it, but I would really hate to part with this car even with all the problems I have had. It is a total blast to drive - especially with the Schrick cams, Garrett chip, larger bore throttle body, K&N filter, and ported and polished head.
It runs hard, and can blow away most anything I see on the road daily. My brother tells me I should sell it - and at times I agree with him... but all it takes is getting behind the wheel and blasting on some deserted back roads, and then all is right with the world. :o)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I too have spent $$$ on my 92' SLC, but the thought of selling it makes me weep. I have spent over $10,000 on replacement parts, and that doesn't even count after market upgrades (another $3,000). I don't know what it is about these things, but they drive me crazy. Others see porsches on the road and get excited, I see a VR6 Corrado and I gotta get closer... even though I'm in one.
