The third-generation Volkswagen Jetta was launched in North America in 1993, and it kept the Jetta name while the car was renamed Vento in Europe. It was bigger and more aerodynamics than its predecessor and it was available only as a four-door sedan because the two-door sedan was dropped. It had a comprehensive range of gasoline and diesel engines, and played host to Volkswagen’s new 1.9-lityer turbodiesel engine, all of which helped it to sell well. It was replaced in 1999. At Haynes, we have an extensive range of Volkswagen repair manuals and online maintenance procedures available for professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts. Our VW Jetta repair manual is here to help you through every stage of servicing or fixing your car.
