1991 Volkswagen Corrado G60 from UK and Ireland
A superbly designed future classic, with power to boot
My Corrado G60 has been quite troublesome since I first bought it. It is already needing new brake pads and disks, a supercharger rebuild, new tyres and possibly a clutch.
However possibly the most inconvenient of faults is the fact that both the door handles will not open from the outside. This I have to climb through the boot! This is a common fault on the Corrado so it is wise to keep the handles well lubricated in order to prevent this from happening.
This car is a beautiful example of what German engineering can create, sexy, stylish as well as looking somewhat mean. It is a head turner. Even though the car is generally coming down in price it is still a fine motor to own.
The G60 is a legend, Forced induction at its finest. It is a speedy number and can give a lot of pleasure to its owner. However one should note in order to receive this pleasure you must give all your attention to the car.
If you are willing to devote a lot of time and money to this car then you will be a happy motorist.
Be aware of high insurance costs though.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
