I was inspired to write this review for the simple fact that the page says 22 mpg. That's impossible, I owned this car for 5 years and only once got below 24 mpg, usually more like 29 mpg, best I ever got was 41 mpg for a tank! Beyond that the car is fun to drive (I had manual GLi 16V), but has typical VW issues like the doors not working (they can be fixed), windshield wipers with mind of their own, and other electrical issues.
I loved and miss dearly my Recaro seats, sunroof, outside temp guage, trip timer, mileage calculator etc. I also miss the fun driving and great mileage.
Muffler hooks constantly break, eventually ending in expensive ($600) muffler replacements, fuel pump/fuel filter, door handles, windshield wipers, and all things electrical.
I have had 3 91/92 Jettas over the past
10 years, and I will always say they
are my favorite type of car. They run
great, are fun to drive and look good
too. Put on some BBS's and installed
Recaro seats, and I was in heaven!
The GLI handles really well, decent
power. I love the boxy shape.
I guess maybe a little more room in the
back seat... Unfortunately, I have to
trade mine in now because of my 2 year
