Still Sexy After 25 Years — Bought this used a couple of years ago, did some neglected maintenance and use it daily. Kinda gutless right now, I need to check to see if the timing is 180 degrees off. A/C lugs the car so bad at idle, it almost dies. Interior needs serious TLC. I agree with others that the electrical system is flaky on this car, but overall, it is a decent vehicle. I call it my Poor Man's Delorean.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Economical to drive, sporty design

Cons: Tough for big folks, no tilt wheel. Electrical issues

Gets Hot! — Love the car to bits, great handling, fast and comfy. Brakes are a bit shoddy. Has no squeaks/rattles. K-jetronic engine is ridiculously economic! A VW Scirocco (mk2 and mk1) are insanely fun to drive even as standard! I'd say get one and enjoy!

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

Pros: Sticks to the road like glue.

Cons: A lot of maintenance if you buy a dodgy one.

Fun!!! — I owned the 16v, five speed model and it was a blast! The first of the 'fast and furious' little cars. It would put a lot of bigger cars to shame with it's performance!

Pros: Fast, light, comfortable, a lot of fun to drive.

Cons: Expensive to repair!!

Man This Was A Fun Car And Just Like A Go Cart. — I think this was my Mini Cooper, it was a ball to drive but the electrics sucked. Otherwise it was really solid.

Pros: Handled great, acceleration was decent and very easy to understand.

Cons: Electricals and crappy shifter.

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
