As has become the norm, the third-generation Volkswagen Golf was bigger than its immediate predecessor when it was launched in 1991. It featured the first ever turbodiesel engine in a Golf, as well as the 2.8-liter VR6 engine. The following year the four-door sedan Volkswagen Jetta was launched in North America, and in 1993 an all-new Cabrio joined the range. Sales were strong throughout the car’s life, until it was replaced in 1997 by the Mk4 Golf and in 1998 by the new VW Jetta sedan in North America. The Golf VR6 died but was later replaced by the 3.2-liter V6 Golf R32 4Motion. At Haynes, we have an extensive range of Volkswagen repair manuals and online maintenance procedures available for professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts.
