I've owned this car for 9 years and i've replaced a few things on it, even putin my own cat-back muffler. I bought this car with 94000 miles and now it has 247000 miles. the oil pressure is so-so, but it still hauls but down the 405! I'll miss it. I'll always have fond memories of this car. took me from salt lake city to huntington beach at least 5 times a year and sometimes much more!

electrical problems plague an otherwise very economical sporty hatch but the performance and reliability can still be wrung out of this with just- short-of-proper maintenance.

I have owned my '91 GTI for about ten months now. In my opinion, it is one of the coolest cars on the road. It's a lot of fun to drive and it gets the looks. When you drive this car it feels…

I have owned my '91 GTI for about ten months now. In my opinion, it is one of the coolest cars on the road. It's a lot of fun to drive and it gets the looks. When you drive this car it feels like you're driving a 5-speed go-kart. It's handling is excellent, and the performance is just as good. As nice as the car may sound so far, be aware of the usual "Volkswagen problems". Trust me, you will have problems, and VWs aren't cheap to fix. You will have fun with this car, but try not to redline it off every green light, otherwise you will be flooded with repair bills.

There aren't really any special features that i can say i favor, but i do have the original Recaro interior which has much more comfortable seats.

If you own or plan on owning a stock (factory) GTI, i suggest you lower the suspension to Eurospec height. You will be able to take a corner like you never thought possible.

This is the most fun to drive car I've ever had! Due to my various exploits, I shouldn't comment on reliability. It has a close ratio transmission, so make sure you don't mind turning 3900+…

This is the most fun to drive car I've ever had! Due to my various exploits, I shouldn't comment on reliability. It has a close ratio transmission, so make sure you don't mind turning 3900+ rpm at 80mph (fuel economy suffers as a result). This car was made for driving, with easy to read guages and good driving position. Ride is kind of harsh, but handling is out of this world. This car loves to get up and go. I can't believe I still have my driver's license!

Recaro seats (especially with my bad back). Great noises (engine, exhaust). Exclusivity (Hey, aren't you that guy who drives the green GTI?). Did I mention fun to drive?

Would have liked some creature comforts, especially cruise control. Also, there were several niceties shown in the brochure that were absent from my car (LED 3rd brake light, body color mirrors). 15" BBS wheels were quite soft.

All for all best car for the value. My 91 GTI 16v came with BBS RM wheels that are extremely rare, Recaro seats, Quad headlamp grill, big flairs, close ratio tranny, and 2.0 16v engine. This…

All for all best car for the value. My 91 GTI 16v came with BBS RM wheels that are extremely rare, Recaro seats, Quad headlamp grill, big flairs, close ratio tranny, and 2.0 16v engine. This car handles like it is on rails, it is extremely quick, really reliable and it is a blast to drive each time I get in it. In my opinion, much, much better than the Japanese competition.

2.o litre 16v motor, recaro seats, BBS RM wheels, and great euro look.

ive had the car for a awhile now. when i bought it it had over 100,000 miles on it. it had the original motor and every thing. shortly after i only made minor repairs like replacing the clutch and starter. both where original.

i like the fact that it has a cover for the area behind the seats,great fuel mileage,sturdy constuction,and performs great

while there isnt much to improve on. i suggest installing a better stereo. the stock one really bites
