1998 VW Jetta for sale. Very clean. A must see situation. If I had a camera available, I would show this car. 124,000 miles. 2.0 motor. By the way this motor is one of VW's b est motors. The VR6 is absolutely no competition to the 2.0 motor. Germans know their cars. It is 5-speed manual transmission. NOT AUTOMATIC. The automatic VW's had some trouble. Entire books have been written about the complicated theory and science of the VW automatics. An automatic transmission relies on transmission fluid to act as a clutch...and should be changed every 30,000 miles. Most people don't change the automatic fluid. If the fluid is very dark and has extreme odor, you need to examine the trany. By the way, the motor and trany are the most expensive of all vehicles. If interested in this awsome Jetta, call 240-291-4770 or 304-271-8871. Ask for J.T. The car is red in color and black interior.

Yes it is. Just depends on which one you have. 12v or 24v....and how many coil packs you've replace.....and vacuum lines.....and I've only had mine 4 months....hehe.
But hey, would still take it over the 2.0 any day.

Someone should flag the guy for false advertising....

Just saw this and now there´s a mouthful of coffee all over my keyboard...Let me tell you, I have the 2.slow in my B5.5 manual wagon, and it´s SSSSLLLLOOOOWWWWWW. It´s reliable and the fuel economy is great, but the engine is just no match to VR6. Period. What´s this guy on???

Lol, I would put my 24V VR6 up against any 2.slow :)
Not even in the same ball park.
My previous Golf was a 2.slow. Nice engine, reliable and easy to work with, but it does not stand up against a 24v vr6.
