    The Corrado is a super sweet car, really cool styling. The high milage has me thinking.
    A fun topic would be – Grenade or Tried and True
    S8 350,000mi
    Does high milage mean that it is a survivor or about to blow you wallet?

    I love these so much. I was in high school in the late 80's/early 90's, and it was also the pinnacle of my VW fan-dom. When the Corrado SLC came out it was the pinnacle of unaffordable VW holy-grailism for me. I had one spoiled buddy whose dad bought him one new, and I swear their is no 6 cylinder that makes noises as sweet as a VR6 with a cold air intake.

    I'm past wanting one, but I've always thought these should get much, much more respect than they did when new or now.

    It's funny, I always thought the Corrado was supercharged and AWD. Was that true of an earlier version?

      The g60 was a 1.8 supercharged more common version. AWD – thank God not, they already have enough problems lol.
      Yes, I too want one of these however I would just look like a creepy older person driving it.

      I wanted a Corrado. Then I went on the VW forum, and saw all the expensive problems they have. Turbos explode; vacuum leaks, weak engine mounts, a bad shifter cable linkage, defective electronic components, and a brittle plastic casing for the shifter can break and prevent the car from shifting. It’s a money pit. Make sure to have an AAA membership when driving this thing. And the high mileage on this example guarantees big buck motor rebuild & rebuilt tranny, putting you instantly upside down on your investment. Kinda like the old advice: "There's no such thing as a cheap Porsche." Well, there's also no such thing as a cheap Corrado.
