1997 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6 from North America
As soon as he makes the last payment, it is for sale!
My son bought his VR6 less than two years ago.
6 weeks after he got it, the crankshaft sensor went out, and left him stranded 30 miles out of town. I made the repair, which was easy if you know what you are looking for.
During the test drive, I discovered that the right front was pulling real bad, then it started making a screeching noise, which turned out to be a wheel bearing. It was a total pain to repair, since the bearing race is two piece, which means the part stays on the hub when it falls out on the ground after you get the axle shaft out. It takes a hydraulic press to get the bearing out of the spindle, which means there goes the alignment. Because the bearing race spun on the hub, it had to be replaced too.
Now here is the kicker, I am having to do this all over again, with less than 30,000 miles on it since the last repair.
The car is faster than a scalded dawg.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
