1989 Volkswagen Jetta GL 1.8L from North America
Took a licking and kept on ticking
Standard maintenance issues for it's age, such as alternator, starter, battery, etc..
Windshield wipers don't work, along with the sprayer.
Rear defrost doesn't work.
Dash lights are super dim and yes I have tried the adjuster switch and that is not the problem.
Dome light doesn't work.
A/C /heater fan makes an awful racket and doesn't work right.
Clutch is starting to go now.
Will get up and boogie if it needs to.
Not very good on cornering, but will hold it's own on the highway.
Never had a problem with the engine, I think it would run forever if put into another car.
It has been in a few accidents and I am surprised it is still with us, but I am moving on to something newer.
Cabin is cramped, but the trunk space is OK.
NO CUP HOLDERS!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
