2002 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 5M)
I have always wanted a VR6 and boy, I am so happy that I finally got one last year. I bought a used GLX 5-speed manual with all the options and only 26,000 miles. I have since improved the car by conditioning the leather and waxing it a couple of times - that's how much I like this car. It has many features you would not expect on a compact car - rear sunshade, automatic windshield wipers, excellent interior illumination (even with ambient LED lighting), fog lamps, REAL wood trim, excellent leather. However, the best thing of this car is the way you connect to it when you drive it. Around town it is amazingly fun to drive, and at high speeds, it is dead stable. Great European car!
Definitely the drive, and luxury features one wouldn't expect. Great attention to detail. I dread the day I'll have to sell this car!
A few interior rattles, clutch seems a little loose.
