Volkswagen’s second generation of the mark chassis. Production started in 1985 and ended in 1992
for Golf/GTIs, Jettas and Sciroccos and in 1995 for Canadian Corrados. The mk2 Jetta is still in production in China (hence the chinese door handle conversion). This generation includes the Jetta, Golf/GTI, Scirocco and Corrado.
This generation featured a light chassis, responsive handling and nice styling. Many options were available from the dealer (power locks and windows, sunroof, alloy wheels, cruise control, roof racks, power steering…).
Engines ranged from 1.3L carburated to 1.6L diesels and 2.8L VR6. Also available was the 16v (1.8 and 2.0L form) known as “god’s balls”, the reliable 1.8L 8v and the supercharged G60 (crossflow 8v).
It is a common mistake to think that these Volkwagens are enpensive to repair. There are many oem and aftermaket replacement parts available and there are quite a lot of them in junkyards. Most electrical problems can be solved by replacing old worn out battery grounds (negative terminal).
