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


Favorite Features

Hard to say, love the car. VW in my genetic code man, really fun to drive


Suggested Improvements

Should have put the antenna on the roof like the GLI, Iíve not seen a Jetta (older Jetta) with one left on hood. Possible VR6 option with a 6spd would make it a real bad ass.

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.


Favorite Features

The gas mileage.


Suggested Improvements

Interior could use upgrades and transmission.

Review

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.

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!


Favorite Features

Gas mileage, room, dependability, just a great car.


Suggested Improvements

The door handles are crap, and the AC seems to give a lot of people problems. The different colored detailing and bumpers obstruct the line of the car.
