Sweet — fast, fun and handles well. i have an aftermarket grill and headlights which make it look sexier and it has a racing clutch, eibach suspension and 5 spd manual tranny which make it a dream to drive. aside from the cat, it runs really well for a car of it's year and mileage.

Hooptie — I have a Ferrari red 1991 Volkswagen Jetta GTX 5 spd. It's pretty quick for a 2 litre. It has racy big bolster Recaro seats, aftermarket rims, sport suspension and soon to add to the list, a burbling custom exhaust.

Economical — Hello. The car has 306,000 mi. Eng. & trans. factory org. Use prem. fuel + syn. oil beginning 1,500 mi. mark. FEATURES: Strong pressure out of e-pipe. No kidding. Standard e-system of the car works perfectly. Tightly packed cylinders with newly added parts. Everything works. Garage not kept. Balto. MD!

perfect for sound system

Cons

Not enough power

Clean Title, Only Been Owned By One Other Person. — Good solid running car, good on gas and seat 4 people. Lots of trunk room for anything. Good size car for a audio system of any choice. Only bad thing about this car I can say is, it lacks acceleration. Amazing turning and braking. The inside is at near perfect condition. the outside has a few dents and scratches, nothing to noticable.

Pros

It still runs after the wheel bearing gave and the wheel fell off.

Cons

Manual Transmission was whack. Probably was a nice car in 1990. Mine did not come with the Recaro seats

25

Squishy — Ehh, did its job broke lots of plastic connectors in shifter linkage. Not sure what they were called but every time one broke I would be down to two gears, usually third and fourth.

Jettas Are Fantastic Cars. — Great 1st car. Lasted me almost 5 years. Bought it from a guy who didn't know anything about cars. He almost destroyed it, but my dad's a mechanic. It was a great car.

big community, lots of mods, reliable

Great Car, Not Hard To Fix — These cars last into the hundreds of thousands of miles, but parts will need replacement. Most of the things are easily fixed, but other, more major ones must be taken to a dealer unless you are very experienced or have the right tools. There's tons of information online easily available to do modifications and repairs.

Cons

Ugly, gutless, head gasket.

It Keeps Going And Going — this this ran so hurt for so long, burned mad oil but was still good on gas. It got me through a tough financial time without craping out on me. It made lots of weird noises and vibrated down the highway and in idle. I finally killed the poor car when I took it for a 3 hour drive down the highway. If I never did that it would have lasted a lot longer.

I'm Trading To A Diesel Beetle Ragtop So I'm Sad To See It Go! By Michael

So your car takes premium and gets 35 mpg? Diesel costs the same or less than premium and this car gets twice the mileage, meaning you use 50-60% of the fuel costs. I'm a long distance commuter, a... Read More
