1995 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6
Great car, sport+comfort, one of the best ever
Minor problems with A/C and power windows regulator.
NO problems in the engine, run smooth and 26 mpg average; 24 city & 30mpg highway.
Engine oil every 5,000 miles (synthetic blend).
160,000 miles - change the head cover gasket and spark plugs, (very easy to do; I do it) only requires wire puller ($35) & 6mm hex key ($6).
Suspension bushings + ball bearings.
About $120 in parts + labor $100.
I know that this is a high mileage car and requires more work but this car runs great, and never leaves me in the highway.
The car is great, this is my third VW, first an '88 VW Fox in 1999, in 2002 I changed for a Jetta GT with a 2.0l engine, later I bought a Chevy Silverado 1995 because I was need a pick-up for hard work, and now I have this car that is the most fun to drive ever. It is a car with comfort, performance and a huge trunk space. My girlfriend bought a 2001 Jetta, and my car is larger in the inside leg room.
I only do great maintenance record, change the engine oil every 5000 miles, good tires, maintain with no oil & water leaks and runs great.
I run about 1,500 to 2,000 miles monthly, and the car runs hard.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
