I wanted a VR-4 for years and finally bought one when I found one at a dealership a reasonable distance away. I have never owned a really nice car before, and the experience of people staring and honking when you drive by is pretty awesome. Even 18+ years later this car still draws attention, and it’s completely stock!
As if it wasn’t enough to drive a “looker,” the performance is also amazing. This is such a fun car to drive. The turbos kick in like you’ve been rear ended around 2,000 RPM and you are on the brakes to avoid a ticket before you know it. The all wheel drive means not an ounce of power is wasted in this car. The vehicle has so much rubber on the road that I have yet to make the tires squeal.
Styling: check. Performance: check. Comfort? Check! Unlike most sports cars, this vehicle has both sporty handling and a sedan like cruising experience. The ECS (electronically controlled suspension) and large wheels give a vehicle a very smooth ride over rough pavement. The seats in this car are very comfortable, and highly adjustable. In general I hate leather upholstery, but because the seats are well ventilated you don’t end up glued to the seat. The automatic climate control functions admirably and makes you forget that there is weather outside the car.
The community surrounding this car is phenomenal as well. Any questions I have had about this car were easily solved by browsing forums and asking other enthusiasts. There are even step by step illustrated guides for rebuilding the transmission!
Overall, it is the dream car I always hoped it would be. I couldn’t be more pleased. I plan to drive this car ‘til the day I die!
