Description for Volkswagen Jetta 1990

Up for consideration is a gorgeous 1990 Volkswagen Jetta Gli 16v. Tornado Red with Grey Recaro interior. Rare all black oem headliner and pillar covers. Original pill key included. All stock.

Such an exhilerating little car to drive. Enthusiast owned. Carves up corners and goes straight down the road with no problems. Fits into tight spaces, driver can reach the whole interior from one seat, and still has a spacious trunk. Suspension feels good, no clunks, quite tight and nimble. Engine always fires right up, and runs smooth with plenty of power. Usually getting 25-32 miles per gallon. Transmission shifts as it should. Exhaust tones are clean.

Quite a bit of maintanence over the last couple of years. Nankang tires like new, recent alignment, oem BBS 15's in great shape. New front brake pads, tie rod end, wheel baring, rear motor mount, all newer shift linkage, clutch cable, v belt, valve cover gasket, oem style cat back exhaust, r32 control arm bushings, heater blower motor. In 2015 complete lightweight clutch kit, with numerous related parts, seals, bushings. In 2014 fuel injectors, spark plugs, distributor cap/rotor, intake and throttle body gaskets, O2 sensor, vacuum lines, etc. Timing belt looks fine, no cracks or odd noises. P/o claimed it was done at 160k.

The exterior presents very well. Usually garaged. Always a shiny red, despite usual minor dings, chips. Rust free.Little bubbling paint under windshield. Decent tint. All mouldings, weather stripping, lights, emblems in good shape, intact. Will come with locking/keyed Yakima cross bar rack not pictured.

Interior is in great shape, quite comfortable. Minimal wear. Manual windows, Power seats and doorlocks/trunk. Has a hint of the goodfactory Recaro smell, that can take one back into the 90's. Front seats wrap and hold you in. All the gauges, trip computer, lights in/out, switches seem to work fine. Great heat, A/c worked fine last summer, was fully tested and serviced. But developed a leak around the upper left condensor. Newer stereo sounds good. Black headliner and upper interior looks as sharp as the rest of the cabin.

Car has been looked after, kept clean, driven maturly, and stored well for most of it's life in the Pacific Northwest. With proper care it should last another 27 years easily.
