1991 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan GL 4dr Sedan


Review

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.

Review

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.


Worst Features

More power, less plastic, other than that a very reliable car.

Review

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.


Best Features

Quick, fun, black, big bumpers


Worst Features

A couple of tweaks and some home brew mods really get it moving. It handles sorta soft, like most older vws, could use a bar. Overall great car.

Review

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.

Review

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...
