1989 Volkswagen Jetta Wolfsburg 1.8 from North America
So much fun to drive
Transmission leaked oil at 250 000.
Water pump bearing fried at 250 000.
Clutch cable snapped at 270 000.
Water temp. gauge didn't work.
Power steering pump died at 260 000.
Muffler needed to be replaced at 260 000.
Passenger door handle came out.
Couldn't unlock back doors in cold weather.
Park break sticky, and then cable snapped.
Engine would idle really high when car was half warmed up.
Then finally front left break was stuck on, then I got rid of it.
This car still had impressive performance for such a small engine. I could pick up speed and pass people with ease! It was a very fun car to drive. Could make corners quickly.
Body was still in excellent shape with minimal rust. interior of the wolfsburg was very nice.
All in All, even though this car had many repairs in the one year I owned it, I still think it was a great car. It had amazing mileage, I could go up to 800km/tank. This car was also a lot of fun to drive, and could easily park any were. I would definitely buy another Volkswagen. I understand that this was an old car, and I have no idea what the previous owner did with it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
