Nice Car — The car was totally stock, a lower model GL. It drove and handled as well as the best small cars of that time. It was made in Mexico and had excellent build quality. It held up well over the four years we owned it. The paint never had any issues, even though it was never garaged. It wasn't particularly fun to drive but it was very satisfying and confidence inspiring. In short it was well suited for it's intended purpose. It was roomy and had a large trunk. There were two major things wrong with it. The Automatic Seatbelts, (pre-airbag, the last year the Jetta was so equipped) and the three spoke steering wheel where the spokes were never quite where they felt comfortable.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Competent on the road, roomy, good mileage, build quality

Cons: Dull to drive, uncomfortable steering wheel (remedyed after the 94 model

Great Car. Fun To Drive. — This was my first brand new car, and my first of now four Volkswagens. I loved the design, fit and finish. A manual transmission in the Jetta made it fun to drive, but with a 1.8L 4, it just didn't have the get-up-and-go to which I was used (to be fair, I traded a 1985 Pontiac Parisienne [V8] for the Jetta). For the first time (If I recall correctly), VW surpassed Volvo in safety for the first time that model year, and the car held its value when time to trade four years later.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Nice design. Good build.

Cons: Not enough acceleration power.

94 Vw Jetta Gl - Looks Great But Kindof A Lemon — Fairly fast and maneuverable, but was already 10 years old when I got it. Idled way too low (around 5,000 RPMs) and stalled on me quite a few times. Had power locks but not power windows, AC didn't work. Had a power moon/sunroof but only opened halfway and seemed to leak a bit. Trunk also had a small leak. Only had it for about 18 months and put way too much into repairs.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun to drive, power moon/sunroof, power locks, good gas mileage

Cons: Manual/crank windows, faulty AC, idling problems, lots of costly repairs

Alright Of A Car — They like that it can hold all of us and its convenient when going places but it has no acceleration and will max out around 120 or so but after 85 it feels really scary and unsafe. it also isnt much better than an SUV when it comes to gas milage. average of 19.

Pros: Convenient, big enough, easy to handle, fun to drift

Cons: no power, gas milage

Great First Car — Volkswagens are very well engineered in general and the jetta is no exception. having had few problems with it in its only 85000 miles, the problems i have had were mostly because of mechanics without brains... or mechanics trying to rip us off. it has quite decent handling and the performance it has for a 4 cylinder car with front wheel drive and weighing in at around 3500lbs GVW is really good.

Pros: for such a small car its comfortable and fairly roomy. the rear seats are easy to fold down for access to the trunk or they also fold up for easy cleaning. everything in the engine compartment is fairly easy to access. lots of trunk space.

Cons: thr trim panels come off easily, the steering squeaks when you turn the wheel all the way as most old jettas seem to do and it lacks a glove box...

Cheap And Super Reliable — not fast at all, but a 2.slow will last you well over 200k miles with even the slightest bit of care. Great first car, and they're easy to get a hold of. Parts are easy to find as well as the engine and body were used for years. My GL was at 237k when I got rid of it, and the engine still ran great. It went on to bigger and better things. Great gas mileage too!

Pros: Super cheap, easy to maintain

Cons: Slow when kept stock
