1990 Volkswagen Jetta GL 2dr Coupe


Got the car with 135k on it. Now its
got 165k. It has got me threw
highschool and now i'm starting
college and it is still going. Its
burning a little oil and the tranny
leaks out a quart every 1000 miles and
it only holds 2 quarts. I ran it dri
before i figured out this and it
started sounding like a space ship but
it lived. It does pretty good off
road for fwd. She look preety bad
but I don't care. Ran over a
ciderblock once and nothing broke
except my exhaust spring clamp. No
rust under the vehicle and shes been
threw lots of PA and NJ winters. Also
it has a truck bed for a trunk. For
such a small car the trunk is huge.

Best Features

Seats, they are very comfortable. Better than my moms 01 civic. They are 6 way adjustable too. I like the storage bins on the doors. I can put a ton of stuff there. Its very easy to see out of and has small blind spots.

Worst Features

It should have at least one cupholder for the driver but it does'nt. A better seal in the tranny would be nice. Maybe more sound deadening material too, you can hold a conversation if your going over 55 on the highway.
