1990 Volkswagen Jetta GLi 1.8 Gasoline


Timeless German four doors sedan


Shock absorbers have gone at 220000 km.

Shifted all wheel bearings at 189000 km.

Dashboard lighting began to flicker at 210000.

General Comments:

This car was well cared for by the previous owner and has given me no problem whatsoever, except what described above.

Handling is good (courtesy of Yokoama's A509 195/50-15) and steering rock solid.

I say a 33 mpg (15 km/L) mileage is not shabby for a twelve years old 1.8L.

Just passed European Union's compulsory Periodic Technical Control without any special work being done on it.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
