92 Jetta/NO Regrets
By robert gorman on 05/10/08 16:57 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

1992 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan

Review

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!

A "REAL" VW feel & drive experience
By Mike T on 03/31/05 10:00 AM (PST)

Vehicle

1992 Volkswagen Jetta GL ECO Diesel 4dr Sedan

Review

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

Review

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.

No Worries '92 Jetta GL 5spd

1992 Volkswagen Jetta GL 4dr Sedan

Review

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 Edition
By Loved the 87 Wolvsbu on 01/15/04 00:00 AM (PST)

Review

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.

My car lives at the mechanic's every other week. The motor is great, but everything else falls apart. I've replaced every other thing, and am waiting to see what's going to break next....

Review

i bought this car about 2 years ago and i will be the first to admit that is has had its fair share of problems. although that was probably because of all the miles on it. even though the problems, i would reccomend this car to anyone, it has made me love to drive (even in traffic). having this car has been an extreme amount of fun.

Eco diesel ROCKS!
By Butaflieyez on 10/08/02 00:00 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

1992 Volkswagen Jetta GL ECO Diesel 4dr Sedan

Review

This car gets unbelievable gas mileage. The door handles and belts have given me a little trouble, but are easily fixed. I have a turbo in mine, and it's faster than an average four cylendar. It's hard to find pieces to sup this car up, but be creative. All in all, this car ROCKS!
