Great Car, Just Dont Buy A 95 And Up!!! — very sporty feeling car, felt fast, handled well, and the best brakes ever. Very well built car, and it was always clean and looked great. The red color always made it worth it to give it a fresh coat of wax. Great on gas!!

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.

Dirty Wagen — From the MK2 generation, comes my 91 Jetta. German built from the Wolfsburg factory; it doesn't suffer the build quality issues like that of other production lines. Power comes from a 1.8 liter, 8 valve, four cylinder. It's solidly built with a Audi block, and a aluminum head; which is mated to a 3 speed automatic. The power comes on gradually, and becomes fun above 3000 rpm all the way to about 6800 rpm. Faster than most modern sub- econo-boxes, it's fun to drive. The handling is balanced and better than I expected. It's not to be mistaken for a sports car, and certainly not for it's big brother, the GTI. The braking is powerful, and more than ample to stop this car in a hurry. No ABS here, it requires some intelligence. At speed down the highway it averages about 32 MPG, which is impressive for it's time. Repair costs have be moderate; proper parts are German, and cost proper money.

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.

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.
