1992 Volkswagen Jetta Overview

Volkswagen got an early jump on the trend toward more environmentally friendly cars with the introduction in 1992 of the Volkswagen Jetta ECOdiesel, which was equipped with a turbocharged 59-horsepower, 1.6-liter diesel engine that delivered high mileage while giving off fewer pollutants.

It joined a lineup that included a 100-horsepower four-cylinder gas engine and a more powerful 134-horsepower gas engine, which were dropped into the Jetta GL/Carat and GLI trim packages, respectively. All versions came with a standard five-speed manual transmission. A three-speed automatic was optional for the Carat and the GL.

Standard features for the ECOdiesel, Carat and GL included bucket seats, power brakes, power steering, a tilt steering wheel, and a rear window defroster. The GLI added power door locks, Recaro seats, and alloy wheels, among other features.

Generally, drivers responded in a positive way to the Jetta, noting that it was a durable and reliable car that was easy to maintain and fun to drive. But many also pointed out that the Jetta could be a quirky car that was prone to expensive mechanical repairs.
