Great car for the budding

Vehicle: 1991 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan

This car needed some TLC when I bought it. The drivers side seat belt ignition switch was starting to go bad. I decided to by-pass the system by cutting the wire that goes from the seat belt switch. I then connected the two wires leading away from the switch and pushed the wires back into the door. I've also replaced the coolant temp. sensor, a few vacuum hoses, one door handle and the engine knock sensor. The automatic transmition torque converter seal was leaking. I took the transmition out and put a new seal on it. Don't buy one of these cars if you can't fix them yourself.




300,000km still strong

I just purchased a 91 jetta GL. It has 300km on it and hasnt been rebuilt but still running strong. I think these cars can last forever if taken care of.




Nothing but fun

This is my second VW and I love it! It has only had normal maintenance. A couple of wrecks have not diminished the performance. It gave where it should have and repairs easily. Great docs.

Vehicle: 1991 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan

The 1991 Volkswagen Jetta GL has been a very good car. The engine and transmission are superior because we have done a few simple things since day one: 1. We 'Baby' the car; 2. Use only synthetic motor oil (every 5k mi.); and 3. Use premium fuel. Our mechanic recently changed the valve cover gasket, looked inside, and said: "This does not look like an engine with 205k miles. It looks more like 75k." My mechanic is a friend and has 45 years experience with VW's. You be the judge....Thank you.




91 - bad year for

Vehicle: 1991 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan

I bought this car used. I was told that there were no problems with it. Well, that was a lie. I have had to replace brakes, fuel pressure regulators, a/c compressors. It needs weekly maintenance and sucks on oil and coolant like there's no tomorrow. VW's may be great cars, but the 91 Jetta just doesn't live up to the standard. I've heard many first hand complaints from other 91 Jetta owners too. At least I'm not alone...




Pretty good little car

Vehicle: 1991 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan

I have had my car for a few years now and the thing just keeps running. I have had to put a little money in it here in there to keep it running, but the car has over 133,000 miles on it with no sign of stopping. I have seen many other cars with over 150,000 and even 200,000. There are little problems here and there with things such as the electrical system which is typically bad from the factory. Other than that it is a good around town car.
