A Great Car - A Little Small For A Family, But Great For A Single Person — This was my second brand new Volkswagon from the same dealer in Medicine Hat, Alberta. This car was more of a sports car, although the four cylinder engine would, today, be considered to be underpowered. It came with a five speed transmission (manual), front wheel drive and fuel injection. Lots of fun and handled very well. This car even came with an AM/FM radio and A/C, although power windows and door locks were not included. Great hatchback with lots of space to carry luggage - the back seat was a little tight, but for a single guy, this car had tons of room. Also very economical to drive.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fun, economy, dependability

Cons: A little underpowered, for a "sporty" car

Fast Lover... — It was a very cute,quiet fast little sport car from the early eightys.off course it was built with the legendary Gti engine wich produced 110 horse power and the car only weight 900 kilogramms.So the acceleration was a quiet nice experience.Specially compare to the previously experienced models such as Dacia,Lada,Trabant. :)))

Pros: Driving experience.

Cons: a bit smallish inside...

Project Car — what do I like and dislike about this car? it handle better then my other scirocco. Its faster. what I dislike is the paint (needs a paint job ASAP). it dose have rust but can be fixed or maybe rat it out (just a thought). The minor upgrades: old school e21 13" bbs wheel (off my old bmw 320i), projector headlights and high bean (off a bmw 745i), upper front strut stress bar. This car is going to be getting some more upgrades soon.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: This scirocco has a manual transmission 5 speed. much faster then the red rocco.

Cons: no A\C and interior need help.

Vw Sciroco Gtii By Tony2259

The mark II Scirocco is possibly the most under rated of all VWs. Picked up for less than the price of a night on the p1ss, the reliable old Rocco will, if looked after, run forever. This is certainl... Read More

Vw Scirocco By Lance

Performance - it's near enough a mk1 golf gti! Build quality - it's a german car, pretty much bulletproof, although it has needed repairs, it is a 20 year old car, but to be fair the car is still sol... Read More

Vw Scirocco Scala By Glen

Performance - This car is quick enough as standard, but after a few light mods it can be very quick off the mark. Handling as standard is fun, but ideally needs lowering on stiffer springs and a lower... Read More

I'm Incredibly Sorry I Sold It... By GermanCarFanMA

I wasn't in the market for a new car until early in 1989, and VW stopped importing them in late-1988. Locating one wasn't as easy as a Google search back then - I had a hell of a time finding a "flas... Read More
