92 jetta/no regrets

Vehicle: 1992 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan

Purchased New in '92 car still Runs and Looks the same as when I bought it. No failings with Interior design but Closing & Locking mechanisms on rear doors are problematic and leave something to be desired. Have had no Engine or Tranny problems (automatic) and no real costs of maintenance other than routine tune ups & oil changes. Trunk is enormous for small sized car which is now 16 yrs old w/96k. This garage kept solid little car is great fun to drive & just can't give it up!




Very good car, will only

The 1992 Volkswagen Jetta is a very reliable car. It is great to work on yourself. I've onwed Fords, Mazdas, and Nissans and VWs out last them all. I love the car!

Vehicle: 1992 Volkswagen Jetta GL ECO Diesel 4dr Sedan

This is the second 92 Eco Diesel I have owned.This one has only 120,000 Klms (75,000 miles) on it and is in new condition. This 92 is naturally aspirated, otherwise no turbo, so you must adapt your driving to the power available. This car is very dependable and great fun to drive, with the good old firm VW feeling. Not a comfortable car, from a cushiony seat point of view, but overall a joy to drive and own.It loves to cruise all day.




This car is insane

I posted a reveiw a few weeks ago about my '92 Jetta GL, I said it got factory stats with a blown head gasket, I had a compressions test done and it gets awsome compression, Which in turns means no blown head gasket. The things it was going looked like one, but after some time of trouble shooting, I relized that an O-Ring on the coolent Resivor had moved. Thus the pressure wasnt regulating, no was allowed to build up proberly. So if you think you have a blow head gasket check the o- ring on your resivor cap, and get a compression test just to be safe.




Fairly good car for its

this is a fairly raliable car. it is fun to drive although not very comfortable. the engine runs great, and it feels strong. i had repeated problems with the heating and the cooling system. i had to change many things. like the transmission, the suspensions and so on, but hey, this is a 12 yro car...

Jetta will run forever never had anything really wrong with it A few typical things i.e. alternator but nothing like engine/transmission problems of any kind. Got factory stats w/ blown head gasket Not easy to find a good mechanic when rarely needed had it for 3yrs 1st time its had to go to the shop Im the 2nd owner & this is the 1st time other than oil changes its had to be in the shop w/180k Not sure if thats a record Interior/ body are good quality build. Cant beat never less than 30mpg & factory stats @ 12yrs quite an achievement, built in Mex but 99% of parts are from Germany Never, left stranded, ever; not expected to happen

The Jetta is actually the sixth VW I have owned, preceded by a 1978 Rabbit, a 1981 Jetta, a 1984 Jetta, and a 1992 Passat. Only the Passat posed any problems at all; when it was just less than five y...
