High RPM's

Asked by May 02, 2016 at 03:00 PM about the 1999 Volkswagen Jetta New GLS

Question type: General

I have a mk4 2.0 5 speed manual and I was wondering if
it's bad to drive the car at high rpms. In 5th gear around
3500 I'm only going 60. I haven't really drove on the
highway much because of it and I was wondering if it's ok
to do?

Yeah it sounds like it's raising

But when I'm at a steady 3500 it sounds fine
