1991 Volkswagen Jetta GL 1.6 diesel from UK and Ireland
A great buy if you can get your hands on a diesel!!
The alternator was not working when I bought the car.
The speedometer wavers until it reaches 30 mph.
The fan-belt was squeaking and had to be replaced.
There is currently a hole in the exhaust which I have been meaning to fix.
30 Euro of diesel fills the tank, this runs the car for over 500 miles.
This car is really nice to drive and it sticks to the road like glue.
Unfortunately the interior is blue and is very hard to find replacement parts for.
I will change to black GTi during the summer.
The diesel engine isn't the quickest on the road, but it keeps up with the Irish limits, 60 to 70 miles per hour.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I really loved the car, no there was no ecu, Irish cars had no ecu's until 1994. The Jetta is a popular car here in Ireland. It will run forever, I finally got rid of this one after over 200,000 miles and bought a seat Ibiza, all I can say is I want my Jetta back, I'm buying another one!!!
