2001 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 5M)
I had this VR6 for 4 years now. I reviewed other reviews from other clients who owned it. I'm lucky... Most have problems and being put in shop often. My VR6 has been running excellent for me with average of 35 MPG. Low profile tires (51 PSI), performace K&N air filter, full synethic oil, prenium gas, increases gas mileage. I've pushed my RPM over 7,000 so many times and never had a problem with it. I've topped almost 175 MPH with a radar used from a friend. All STOCK! It is a very fast car. I've raced BMW M5 and beat him, he was an idiot, he had auto and I had stick shift and I won 500 bucks. hee hee. Best car I've owned except for my old Dodge V10 truck.
Performance in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gear. Great handling especially in the snow with ASR system. (can be turned off if you want to smoke those rubbers!)
Could use improvement on the front end and rear end bumpers, want it to be aluminum instead of fiberglass or plastic.
