  3. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    I came across a low mileage 2.0 with only 56k miles on it. Doing research on this car has proven difficult since most people talk about the TDI or 1.8t. The common through lines I have found on the 2.0 are “reliable” and “slow”. Most of what I found was not from the past decade though. Now that...

  7. Golf VI R
    I've been looking for MK VI GTIs for the past 2 months when I came across what at first appeared to be a really good deal on a 2013 4D R. The car is priced at 15k and has clean service history but has 145k miles on it. Obviously that is very high mileage and I doubt that there are many other MK...
  8. Passat (B5)
    I have a 2002 Passat V6 4Motion Wagon with 230k on it, I have no idea when or if the transmission fluid was ever replaced on it, it sometimes has a hard downshift if I let it cost from 40 to 30, and if I am coasting from 5 mph for a bit and tap the gas it rarely has a hard shift. I asked the...
