1990 Volkswagen Jetta Diesel 4dr Sedan


Review

After owning over 30 cars in various condition and age this has been my favorite. Acceleration is not a strong point. The car rides great but cornering could be better. Any Jetta/Golf from 86-92 has these woes: The outside door handles WILL break but they are very easy to replace (1 screw). If you don't properly seal the antenna at the fender rain water WILL LEAK ONTO the FUSE BOX causing electrical problems. (SEE OTHER REVIEW). The diesel engine is famous for longevity. The engine noise and diesel smell will grow on you after awhile...Regular oil and coolant changes are essential for the diesel engine.


Favorite Features

Overall ride and drive quality are excellent. Very dependable and economical if maintained properly. The interior is comfy and durable. Most parts are readily available.


Suggested Improvements

Outside door handles and premature A/C expansion valve failures.
