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


Best Features

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


Worst Features

Should have put the antenna on the roof like the GLI, I’ve 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.


Best Features

The gas mileage.


Worst Features

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.

style and performance

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!


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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.
