1991 Volkswagen Jetta GLI 16V 4dr Sedan


I was inspired to write this review for the simple fact that the page says 22 mpg. That's impossible, I owned this car for 5 years and only once got below 24 mpg, usually more like 29 mpg, best I ever got was 41 mpg for a tank! Beyond that the car is fun to drive (I had manual GLi 16V), but has typical VW issues like the doors not working (they can be fixed), windshield wipers with mind of their own, and other electrical issues.

Best Features

I loved and miss dearly my Recaro seats, sunroof, outside temp guage, trip timer, mileage calculator etc. I also miss the fun driving and great mileage.

Worst Features

Muffler hooks constantly break, eventually ending in expensive ($600) muffler replacements, fuel pump/fuel filter, door handles, windshield wipers, and all things electrical.
