1989 Volkswagen Jetta GLi 1.8 litre 16v 4 cylinder from North America
A somewhat expensive car, with nice seats and some punch
My alternator went at 280000Km, which isn't too bad for a stock factory alternator.
My muffler went, so I fixed that with flow-master.
Had engine swap at 270000Km, for another 1.8 Litre 16V 4 cylinder with only 12000Km on it.
Clutch worn to nothing at 276000Km, but for factory clutch, I would think that is expected.
Emergency brake doesn't work, but I can fix that.
I like this car... a lot, I like it a lot.
This thing waffled my little 1992 Civic owned by a grandma with 70000 KM on it.
My car is lowered roughly 3 inches and I have never been so amazed by a car's handling.
I have beaten a 5.0 litre mustang with this car. My plans for it are to get a K&M Air Filter and a supercharger. I am gonna suck the life out of this car.
Car is Nitrous Oxide ready (unlike some stock Civic I saw tearing around with Nitrous Oxide) I have the proper pistons, and basic engine components, all I need is the tank, so far I have been afraid to touch it...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
