Cheap Very — Great first car for anyone, I picked mine up for only $600 and it worked great until the day it was totaled. These cars are built incredibly well and if you get one you wont have to put a lot of money into it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Price

Cons: performance

1990 Vw Jetta Gl — 19 year old silver vw getta gl, 5 speed, blue interior. accleration is good, handles like a dream, power steering belt squeeks in tight turn-arounds. sun roof is fabulous especially at night. looks fine. sound system speakers are factory with jvc cd and tuner and sound great. i'm attempting to keep gas milage down by keeping rpm's around 2000 when upshifting so with that gas milage is good. my jetta is fun, i love vw's would'nt trade my jetta for any american or japanese thing...

Pros: fun factor, handling, gas milage.

Cons: frount bumper

Volkswagon Jetta — Acceleration is great, handling is good because of anti-roll bars, and struts, it needed new power steering pipes but that about it, it also needs a tune up. it rattles a little. 33 mpg

Pros: Lowered, body kit, anti-roll bars, and struts, exhaust, window tints

Cons: none

Good Basic Transportation, Just Beware Of The Engines! — these cars are remarkably solid and safe, however they do like to break down frequently, causing high repair bills. unfortunately i can't recommend the jetta because of a repeated issue i had with cracked pistons in the 1.8 liter 8 valve 4 cylinder engine that came standard. otherwise these cars are surprisingly sporty to drive and have good acceleration with the standard 5 speed manual. these also get over 30 mpg, which is very good for such a fun to drive car.

Pros: performance, transmission, body structure, optional sunroof (manual crank.. nice and
reliable) safety, handling, fuel mileage, trunk space.

Cons: engine reliability.

1990 Volkswagen Jetta Review
Daniel says:
I love the 1990 Volkswagen Jetta. My uncle had it and gave it to me for my 16th birthday. While it did have some minor flaws that are now fixed I love this car for many reasons. It gets fantastic gas mileage for the day I on average get 29 Miles Per Gallon. This beast handles so amazingly well with a super tight turn radius and power steering it is amazing. To end it off it doesnt have Mustang power off the line but when I fire ball the throttle it still puts a smile on my face for how fun this car is to drive. In all parts are a bit pricey, but if you find one of these great cars for sale I suggest to buy it immediately it is so much fun to own.
