I Want It Back! — Although my current vehicle is a 2004 MINI Cooper S, the VW Jetta is probably one of the best vehicles I've ever owned. The 2.8L VR6 model is fast as all get out, luxurious, and I've had some of my best moments in that car.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The VR6 model!!!

Cons: That I don't have it anymore?

Power Ranked 1995 Mitsubishi 3000GT better.
"The cars both had comparably sized V6 engines, but the 3000GT just felt significantly more powerful and fun."
Handling Ranked 1995 Mitsubishi 3000GT better.
"Handling couldnt compare, for such a heavy car, the 3000GT handles remarkably well. Jetta, not even close..."
