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.

Vw Jetta Gtx - Factory Pimped Family Car — In 1990 VW dropped the GLi variant which was replaced by the GTX. The mark 2 chassis and 16 valve 2.0 litre engine were complimented with BBS cross-spoked 15 inch rims and Recaro electric height adjustable racing seats. This variant was limited to two years in production.

Pros: A beautiful sedan which handles very well and accelerates quickly. Lots of interior space and very comfortable for long journies.

Cons: Being from it's first year of production, this magnificent engine had a few faults.

16v Cyln140bhp, 5 Speed, All Wheel Discs With Porsche Recaro Interior — Very Fun Car, Rare and Expensive to keep up, parts hard to find. Car was a bit too High Performance for the VW Range when originally offered to public, only 5000 per Model Year Produced.

Pros: Fast, Can Turn on a Dime, Stealthy Sports Car, Kicked off a Following for the GLI Line, that came back in 2002

Cons: Needed more Stock Power, better Tansmission and better quality Sound System

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.
