Re: Someone Help me out. . .I need advice on buying a corrado. . . (CorradoForMePLEASE)
ill help out as much as i can, take it for what its worth-
First decide what you want. which model. (i wont even get into a debate a million people will throw hot pokers at me). I drive a vr6 corrado. its what I wanted. I wanted a 6 cyl. I like the extra torque, and dont much care if it costs more to modify. Im my own experience I have had nothing to major go wrong with my slc. Mostly annoying things. My friends g-60 has been a pain for him. But its all in how you take care of it i guess.
If it were me i would get the following years:
g60 - 91-92
slc - 93-94
i personally stay away from the first year models. But thats just me. the 93.5 have a newer nicer interior. I got that. Some have a cold weather package. heated seats/mirrors a nozzels. The slc's are notorious for weak headgaskets and timing chain guides. they have chains not belts. Make sure it has a good service history. The g60's have problems witht he super charger. Some as common as every 30K need a rebuild. I have driven both a stock g60 and vr, and the vr slc feels much nicer IMO. pulls nicer, handles nicer, and feels more solid. IMO again.
watch for smoking exhausts. Other than that, go test drive some, and make sure the recalls have been done for the car. http://tech.vw.com
has it al listed. Make your own choice on model. everyone here has a different preference. I choose the SLC. even if it costs a fortune to modify nicely. its worth it.
good luck man, and if i can help more lemme know
