Re: Dare I ask....MK4 buying advice? (Big Dac With Fries)

the 2.0 is a horse, not many problems at all, you MAY get the 2nd gear grind problem, but its not major, its more of an annoyance to hear it from time to time
overall its a great pretty much major problem free

- btw the 2.0 is NOT succeptable to the coilpack problems, and the window reg problem probably already got replaced

What about the MAF problem? Or the premature rear brake wear problem? Or the failing brake light switch/cruise control problem?

Re: (lostchild)

Rev: Don't worry...I'm not converting to coilpacks, CEL's, and cupholders like Erich. It's my dad...he's looking to replace the Dodge.
Current car is a 1991 8v Jetta with V-Tick.

Re: Dare I ask....MK4 buying advice? (Kei78)

I'm still trying to talk my dad into getting a 3rd 1991 4door Jetta....think of the parts interchangeability!
