This is my 4th VW (92 Corrado, 2 Jettas and my GTI). Only problem I've had was the coil Packs, no surprise. Previous owner only replaced 3 of the 6. Car has power whenever you need it. My Corrado (with a couple of mods) could do 140mph and keep pulling.
All the air bags, traction control and 17s. 6spd tranny is cool as well.
Cup holder is really not that functional. Better tires and suspension.
