1991 Volkswagen Jetta GLI 16V 4dr Sedan


Review

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.


Favorite Features

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.


Suggested Improvements

Muffler hooks constantly break, eventually ending in expensive ($600) muffler replacements, fuel pump/fuel filter, door handles, windshield wipers, and all things electrical.

Everything about this car is great other than it's not built to take my abuse. I'm on my second motor and it runs beautiful, so did the first one until I advanced the timing and through a rod!


Favorite Features

Handling machine, best style to this date


Suggested Improvements

MORE POWER!!!!!!!

Review

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!


Favorite Features

The GLI handles really well, decent power. I love the boxy shape.


Suggested Improvements

I guess maybe a little more room in the back seat... Unfortunately, I have to trade mine in now because of my 2 year old.
