ReviewAfter 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
Best FeaturesOverall ride and drive quality are excellent. Very dependable and economical if maintained properly. The interior is comfy and durable. Most parts are readily available.
Worst FeaturesOutside door handles and premature A/C expansion valve failures.
