“best vw motor”

Written on: 13/03/2013

I own a rare colored one ,Onix like charcoal jetta 94,it the best car in this world ,i would not trade it for any car,Not a Lambo NOTHING.3 gear is the strong hold ,mutch like v-tecs 3 gear,although the Honda revs harder and faster the 6 cylinders shoot you out the blocks and run thru km/h like nothing.When your goin 120 or 140 km /h and you put the foot down it starts pulling all over again.Most definitly a Highway King and if your gonna out run it on the high way u beter have something… Read Full Review

“I'm in love with this car”

Written on: 12/11/2011 by paulbic (1 review written)

I swapped this 1996 Highline for a caravanette and since then I've been in love. The engine is as smooth as oil - it doesn't make the exterior noise of so many 'hot-hatchback' but leaves them quietly behind. It's seating and cabin are a delight and I've driven it over 500 miles and got out not in the least tired. I've met some corners on roads I didn't know and thought 'Oh, oh!' but it feels glued to the road. It has never failed to start in the four years I've had it and the only major work it… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/03/2010 by luckstar69 (6 reviews written)

Fast and powerful, nice to drive, good features. Very juicy to run, 18 MPG average. Part are expensive, car is front heavy as engine weighs so much. Would not buy another unless I won the lotto. Bought a V6 4motion after this and sold this to. Too juicy on fuel and parts are too much.

Best part was the sound of the engine at high revs! :-)

Hated the running costs ;-(

Written on: 25/03/2009

Fast as you like. The Volkswagen Golf VR6 is very very reliable. It looks amazing and drives just as well! Easy to get parts for even for a 16 year old car! (In my case) If something does go wrong then the cost can be quite bad if you go to a VW dealer. Gas guzzler. Overall and amazing car and if I think I'll drive this one to death. If this one died on me then I wouldn't think twice about buying another… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/01/2009

1995 M reg 2.9 model. Had the car for 6 months or so. Paid £900 with no MOT. Took a gamble and have been chuffed to bits since. Car now owes me about £2000 including all mods. I just love driving this car. Its quick, holds the road, (although the torque steer can be edgy) and is always effortless on motorways or backroads. it always entertain. A must try for all hot hatch lovers… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/01/2009

You havent grown up without owning a VR6, its like a introduction to sports cars. I drive my car everywhere, Its not as bad as everyone makes it sound. I drive my car on weekends and no words can describe how good it really is. Buy one, they are cheaper than buying a M3, SL or some group 17 -20 car, only difference is price and perhaps no sat nav.
Who needs that when you can pick up a VR6 Highline for £2000… Read Full Review

The VW Golf VR6 is quick, and cheaper than most Sports hatchback you can buy nowadays.

Written on: 05/03/2008 by martytarty10 (1 review written)

I have owned my VR6 for only a short period of time but I have fallen inl ove with it. Black 5 door, twin headlamp conversion, decked on a set of 17" Wolfrace Koyoto's, induction kit, up-rated fuel regulator and re-mapped it truly is the dog big dangleys. Wouldn't trade it for anything in the world, had 150 out of it and she still had some pull in her. V Dub all the way, why would you want a piece of jap stuff when you can have some euro muscle?… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/01/2008 by pipsimcoe (1 review written)

I personally think from reading all these comments that you lot have way too much cash spare and don't forget a car is only quick if you can drive it properly. My VR6 is chipped, cammed has an induction kit and it's a Golf and you're right, the suspension is rubbish but a set of Konis or something like that sorts this out and uprated anti roll bars help. I have a full Remus exhaust system I bought all of this stuff because I like it. I get the feeling some of the other people making these… Read Full Review

I've owned my golf3 VR6 for almost 2years now with no engine/gearbox hassles. I had to replace most of the major electrical parts though which proved to be quite costly:

HT-Leads
Airflow-Meter
Crank-Angle-Sensor
Coolant-Temp-Sensor
etc....
