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!




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




Love the 87 vw wolvesburg

Vehicle: 1992 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan

The gas milage is great. Quite roomy with three kids. No power. What happened to German quality. This edition was not built in Germany. The transmission is smaller than my 87'. Although they are both 1.8 liters. The 87' Wolvesburg edition drove better because of the better and bigger trany. I still love VW's. I have a 96. Although I would rather take another 87' Wolvesburg. Bring back the style, comfort, simplicity, better gas mileage and MADE IN GERMANY not US.
