I have owned my VR4 for longer than any other vehicle I have owned, and for good reason. It has been simply the most enjoyable car I have owned. These cars are very relieable you just have to do your homework and keep some problem spots in check. The performance is great stock but not mindblowing. But with any car with turbos and AWD super car performace is easily within reach for every budget. And considering what these cars sell for it should be considered a steal. Which is the only real problem they have, the resale values dont represent the value accurately. And dont expect to pay the prices edmunds gives, you will pay at least $5000 for a high mileage VR4 that will need some TLC.
All Wheel Drive, this alone simply made it the best car in its class when new(wheres all the supra, 300xz, and rx7 fanboys when the snow flies?)
Long gearing of the 5spd
Very comfortable interior and could still pass for a new car with its design
Price (unless your trying to sell one)
Did I mention All wheel drive?
always check the oilpan for dents!! never buy one if it looks like someone jacked up the car by the oilpan, very common
mistake made by uneducated owners
