Description:

1991 Volkswagen Jetta

OK so I have owned this car for many years. I did sell it to my mother for her use as a retired person and she owned it for about 5 years, then she sold it back to me when I bought her a Honda CRV, as she wanted 4 doors. Since I bought it back, I have corrected a few issues the car had and now I am ready to turn it over to the next owner. I already own four other mk2s and a mk3 so I am very familiar with them and love them dearly.

I purchased this car almost ten years ago with a bad transmission but a strong engine, and did the transmission replacement using a Eurospec transmission with upgraded syncros (a common fault on these transmissions). While I was in there, I replaced the clutch as well.


If you feel like the list of issues is long on this car, please consider that many people try to hide most of the car problems in order to get more money or to get rid of junk. That is not my motto, as Honesty is top on my list, even if it means I get less money for the car. I will someday answer to a higher power than myself and I need to be feel comfortable doing that.Jetta coupe for sale located in Kingsport, TN.

  • High Points:All Jetta coupes were built in Wolfsburg Germany. Better build quality than the cars made in the Pennsylvania plant or in the Puebla Mexico plant.

  • Brake pedal is high and firm, with no vibrations.
  • Steering is responsive and tight, with a slight vibration above 65mph.
  • Exhaust has a good if slightly loud tone.
  • Transmission is from Eurospec, and has upgraded syncros. I bought the transmission from the original purchaser after he parted out his car. Eurospec: "dual synchroniser assembly for 1st and 2nd gears"
