The Golf R is a sad, sad car.. It suffers major engine failure (the failure was when VW decided to put a 4 pot in it instead of a 6 cylinder)

To answer your question: People like older VW's because they know how to wrench and fix their own cars. It's labor of love. And you heard wrong. Car's are as garbage as the owner's who take care / don't take care of them.

Who did you hear that from? From a Scion owner?

My mechanic teacher said the same thing lol he was like why does everyone like mark 4s and stuff they are price of junk cars and he has been a mechanic for like 50 years lol

Guess what, your teacher is human. Humans make errors in judgement. Supposing that he's basing statements from experience, did it ever occur to him, or you that those "junk" MK4s were poorly maintained, female owned (not sexist, but MOST females know nothing about car maintenance), or beaten to death?

Another thing to add: Your mechanic has been wrenching for 50 years? That makes him 70+?
MOST (not all) older folks have brand loyalty and prefer American cars over foreign. You wanna bash a brand or product? That's fine, but at least know WTF you're talking about.

Your mechanic is entitled to his opinions, I have a right to tell him how stupid his opinions are.

I would start with a MK2. That was my first VW. Easy to work on and easy to get parts for. My first car/swap was in my 86 GTi and I did a 16v swap into it. Then years later I did a VR swap in my 91 GTi, that was a fun one. People dis VR's into MK2's but I think there the best combo ever!! VR6's are my favorite motors/swap by far. Hope this helps, if you have anymoe ?? 's feel free to hit me up.
