This car runs superbly. Changed the head gasket at 330K and it was still in excellent shape internally, also changed the clutch in 2010. Good get up and go and gets 1000 km per 50 litre tank on the highway (20km/litre), 17km/litre in the city. Parts are still readily available. Good for another 10 years.

the diesel is a winner
GL Diesel 4dr Sedan
I have owned four or five VW diesels,
all were/are impressive. Though the 91
Jetta has required more attention than
the 84 I owned (starter rebuilt twice,
alternator rebuilt once), the engine is
mighty fine, the clutch is tight and
the transmission has always shifted
with minimal effort. I can load the
car mercilessly and head off on
vacation and get 45 mpg. I've only put
about 100K on this car, but that's
because I own too many cars. The VW
will remain in the stable for years to
come. I really like the car.

Always got 'er done
GL Diesel 4dr Sedan
Overall my little Diesel Jetta GL was
wonderful to me. I drove it, and drove
it and drove it and it just kept on
truckin. Gas mielage is out of this
world and so is the heat it can pump
out. I did have to replace two door
handles. Aside for those and the glow
plugs once I really didn't have any
trouble with it. When I did I always
had a heart attack, expecting the
worst and it was always just a fuse!
I'm serious people- fuses were the
number one problem I had with that
car. It was always groovy though
because I don't mind twelve dollar
repair bills. VW's rock and the
diesels are rocks!

great car with typical VW issues
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.

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you
that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make
higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand,
can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a
new car every three years or so.
