1997 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6 4dr Sedan
Review
This is my 3rd VW and won't be my last. The only thing to know about this car is the fabulous VR6 motor.......torqey, smooth, reasonably fuel efficient, sounds great, and very reliable. If you're looking to buy this car used, don't bother with the anemic 2.0 liter/115 hp motor......waste of time and money. Aside from the great motor, the rest of the car is ho-hum.....bland suspension, smallish wheel/tire combo, unimaginative interior, unexciting body.....but oh DAMN that motor!
Favorite Features
If you haven't guessed, I like the VR6. Great packaging in a small car; huge trunk, nice fold down rear seats.
Suggested Improvements
Tighten up the suspension so it doesn't porpoise and wallow. The springs are too soft and the compression damping is too high......not a good combo. Increase wheel/tire size to 17".
