Golf GTI VR6 for under 3K usd
By - olafjb
Next to the Mk2, these are my favorite generation in terms of styling. 3k seems reasonable if it's a running, working car.
My concern though is that this generation wasn't exactly known for reliability, lol. Expect problems and frequent fixes/tweaks.
Great car, but could be dicey, especially if you'll be doing a lot driving to remote areas.
I see, these fixes/tweaks should be fairly common and "cheap" right? As expected from a VW car lol
PS: I'm braindead when it comes to most cars. I love all golfs MK2 and MK4. I grew up with a Jetta a4 2000 lol but they're a bit more expensive.

The vr6 is one of the best engines vw ever made. The 02J/02M manual transmissions are also pretty stout. Don't expect great fuel economy. I think I saw mid to low 20's mpg with my 12 valve. But expect a smile on your face every time you drive it. But like anything, if it was abused and neglected you can expect repairs. The price seems reasonable enough for its age though.
