1991 Volkswagen Fox Reviews

I bough this car 5 year ago and has never let me down.

The VW Fox has a nice engine and transmission, they were trouble free for the few years I drove this car. The interior was pretty cheap and it handled terribly. The suspension was non responsive and it kind of floated as you drove it, much like an old Buick.
