A plain old Jetta with a secret under the hood
Preventative Maintainance upon taking ownership-
Timing belt, timing belt tensioner, cam roller replaced.
Water pump leaking-replaced.
Lower ball joint worn out-replaced.
Muffler is falling apart-will replace with straight through pipe from catalytic converter back.
This car really moves!
I've had it to 105 mph, but the pedal still wasn't all the way to the floor!
Good torque, too.
This TDI motor is a far cry from the anemic, putt-putt, smoke belchers of the late 1970s-mid 80s.
Only smokes when its being put through its paces, showing off.
It will run on #1 diesel too (will need a conditioner added if driven in cold climes)!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
