Jetta Transmissions

It’s safe to say that Jetta transmissions have withstood the test of time. Over 7 million Jetta cars have been sold worldwide since 1980; over two million of that 7 million were sold in the US market. Volkswagen named this sedan model after a prominent wind. The company was changing its international image and used the wind as a metaphor to introduce new VW models.
The Jetta was designed to move consumer’s thoughts to a more family oriented ride since it replaced the aging Beetle in the US market, which was the compact that started a basic 2-seat compact revolution. The engine in this new Jetta was a standard 1.1 liter, 4-cyliner with a 5-speed transmission or an optional 1.8 liter inline 4-cylinder with 110 bhp and 111 ft-lbs of torque.
The second generation Jetta was introduced in 1984. It was another sales success story for VW. The exterior dimensions of the car increased in all directions and the aerodynamics were greatly improved. The engine and transmission options were still the same. A diesel powered 5-speed manual, and a gas powered 5-speed manual, and 4-speed automatic carried the Jetta through the 1980s and into the changing 1990s. A 1986 turbo-diesel, 5-speed Jetta with over 562,000 miles was still on the road in 2007. It won a Volkswagen of America contest for longevity.
In 1990, a new Mark 2 body style, and 2.0 liter 16 valve engine with a 4-speed automatic or 5-speed manual transmission with closer ratios kept the car fresh in several auto markets around the world. The Jetta King, introduced in 1998, underwent a severe exterior and interior facelift even though the engine choices and transmission choices stayed the same.
The third generation Jetta engines were the 1.9 liter turbocharged direct injected diesel, and the 5-speed, 2.8 liter DOHC 6-cylinder that produced a 0 to 60 time of 6.9 seconds. The fourth generation made its debut in 1999. It was known as the Bora in several markets around the world, but the Jetta name stuck in the US market thanks to strong sales and a new 1.8 liter turbo 4-cylinder with a 5-speed manual transmission. The VR5, which was a 5-cylinder derivative of the 6-cylinder VR6 engine, was an option as well.
The Pumpe-Dues diesel engines introduced in 2004 were still available since these engines had emission equipment that met new emission standards. We sell Jetta transmissions. For more information about our transmission inventory call or email us now.
