1993 Volkswagen Jetta Overview

1993 was a changeover year for the Volkswagen Jetta, with some of the older '92 models on their way out and the next-generation models slowly being introduced across the country, starting in California. However, the introduction of the new '93 models was delayed due to labor problems at the carmaker's plant in Mexico, so sales were limited.

The redesigned Jetta came in a sole version for 1993. It was equipped with a new 2.0-liter single-overhead-cam four-cylinder engine that generated 115 horsepower. A five-speed manual transmission was standard, while a four-speed automatic was optional.

The package of standard features improved for 1993 as well, and included bucket seats, power brakes, power steering, a rear window defroster, a tilt steering wheel, power door locks, and an anti-theft alarm system.

Overall, drivers' impressions of the '93 Jetta were positive, with fuel efficiency, roominess, and reliability cited as positive points. However, some drivers reported quality-control issues with the car.
