1991 Volkswagen Jetta GL Review


Nice interior materials, good looking, strangely pleasing engine idle, quirky musical reminder chime, decent handling.  Much more interesting than other cars in its class and price range.


Poor reliability, poorly assembled.


Not A Bad Looking Car, But Junk, Junk, Junk! — Okay, I can't be TOO critical here because it was my wife's first new car. Just out of graduate school, she bought a silver Jetta sedan for the same money as would have bought her a boring Escort/Tracer/Protege. It had nice European "flavor", pretty good handling, that wonderful VW lumpy idle that many of you may remember from the 1.8 litre four, and the quirky musical reminder chime. But by 15,000 miles there were strange clinks and jingles emanating from under the car when we hit bumps, you couldn't always get the car into first gear when attempting to depart from a stop, and the paint had worn off the leading edges of the poorly-aligned rear passenger doors from road grit coming off the tires. I swore I'd never buy another VW, and here I am driving another VW (a 2005 Jetta TDI wagon). This time I mean it. Once other automakers, especially Honda, start making diesel-powered cars available in the U.S., there'll be no reason to ever buy a VW.

good handling and quick


broke down alot but I think that was the driver


My Hubby Car — Very fast for what it was! He had a chip and exhaust. He drove it to the ground and then sold it to our buddy who fixed it and also drove it to the ground!
