1992 Volkswagen Jetta — It was an underpowered car (only 90hp I believe). Because it was small it felt more peppy. Everything that could go wrong with this car, did go wrong. Even the door handles stopped working. It spent more time in the garage than I did driving it, which is sad, because I liked the car when it actually ran. Eventually I sold it, luckily.

Pros: None

Cons: Horrible reliability, underpowered

Jetta Mk2 Vr6 — 1 of a kind...Jetta mk2 vr6 with Audi leather interior & Deutsch Tunning Chip....Started as a project with very little light at the end of the tunnel. Now has become my little weekend sports car. She does not go out in the rain or snow. She does not like days were the humidity is high. She's actually very picky just like any other Volkswagen of those years. She's fully re-built from the ground up. This is my 9th Volks.....& probably not the last. The Germans make excellent cars & were way ahead of their time. In my opinion the MK2 Golf/Jetta second generation were some of the best built cars ever. You cannot kill the 1.8 8 v ....& should you decide to drop acouple of thousand dollars into your MK2 Jetta/Golf by going 2L 16V or even the later 2.8VR6 then you've got yourself a little monster / Go-Kart!!! Driver Found!

Pros: +++

Cons: NONE

Awesome Car — This car is sweet. It rides and handles well, has a really comfortable interior, gets 35-40 mpg, and is quite fun to drive.

Pros: handling, sexy european styling.

Cons: Rear door handles are weak, don't work well in the winter.

My 92 Jetta — looks alot like my 91 Diesel but this one is gas and also a 5-spd. bought this one for $1000 in Ontario with 150,000kms in mint condition !! Didn't need a thing for an inspection I ended up selling this one to buy the 90 Golf (automatic) for Maggie, started out to teach her how to drive standard but she didn't have the patience for it.

Pros: Good power and fuel economy, awsum styling and Volkswagen reliability is un touched !! The hell with Honda, vdubs or nothing

Cons: Wish I didn't sell it, out of all my vdubs I miss this one and my 97 golf most of all.

Dependant, Bautiful...little Beast — It's a 1.8L engine...no not turbo. Can't afford it but you know what I'm still extremly happy with my car! It's engine runs strong, and I take care of my car. It has never done me wrong even when I drove it from Calgray to Ontario in the hottest weather. I get mad like when my muffler fell off lol but minor things happen on mondified cars, ecspecially when it's lowered. I have to roll down my windows, nothing is automatic and that's the way I like it. Honestly I love "him" so much and would never sell! xo all u vw lovers

Pros: Lowered and performance tires give it great handling. It looks so eurospec, clean, and tidy not too flashy (unlike many Hondas!).

Cons: Lowered and performance tires make it terrible to drive in the rain or snow lol. Cops keep stoping me because my muffler is too loud, and my car is fun to speed in lol.

Good Buy $$ — Great ride. Very reliable car for MKII Jetta, not like the newer models, recall after recall. It`s a v-dub..

Pros: Great gas mileage, cheep to fix and 1.8 Liter 8v motors are capable of high mileage.  

Cons: Could use a 16v, 1.8T or VR6.

The Jet — Performance wise it is very slow because it has 52 HP. I think the torque is in the 70-80 ft/lbs range. Braking is ok, not the greatest but for how light the car is, it stops great. The build quality is great. The engine will probably run forever. The cost to run the car is very cheep compared to a van or truck. i take frequent long trips and does well. the top quarter of the tank is the largest and i can go those 270km on the top quarter of the tank. the tank holds 55L of diesel fuel. There is not alot to this car, it is almost like you have an old tractor engine in your car its so simple. There is no computer, no fooling around with diagnostics, just plane jane and that's how i like it. This car is fun because it is lite, it has a manual transmission and because it is a diesel with good torque. If you don't like somebody riding your ass, you can drop down a gear, pin it and watch them get smoked out!! ha ha suckers.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very Fuel Efficient

Cons: not alot of power, quite slow
