Best Little Car Made — Safety. Leather seats. Heated Seats. Performance plus especially for a four cylinder. Driver friendly. Clean. Very fun to drive. low mileage and maintenance. Comfort is a plus for driver and passenger. very little repair minor needed. I love this car.

Pros

Just completely amazing

Cons

I can't think of any reason not to!

You Need To Try It. — Great perferormance, handles itself, pulls loads. Good breaks, easy to use, not to sharp or too easy! Acceleration is just amazing. Unexpected power. Yeah, she's old needed first new set of spark plugs which for over 100,000 miles is amazing! No squeaks, slight rattle, but thats cause of everything we've put in her. GORGEOUS! Perfect looks, she's milky blue! We changed the original stereo for a tv, to play our iPod, but the original stereo was goood. Very well put together, loads of space! Needs a clean though haha. She's quite pricey but so worth it, tax is 120£ for 6 months so its abit annoying there, insurance for my 20 year old boyfriend was decent to say hes only had 1 year driving expierence! Yeah she is, she's got her own personality, she's just fun, gorgeous car. Whether you wanna cruise or put your foot down.

Pros

FAST and TIGHT TURN RADIUS

Cons

It's a wagon

25

Awesome Car For Family People — i love it because it has good acceleration and speed. tight handling, stops on a dime! it has a small gas tank but it gets awesome mileage. you can drive it almost flat out and still get about 19 mpg. so fun to drive despite being a wagon.

My Passat — for a TDI Sport or goes very well. this one has all the mod cons, like climate controlled air conditioning, alloy wheels, electric windows all round, alarm and immobiliser as standard, tinted windows on the rear , automatice rain sensor, auto tinting interior mirror, to relieve headlight dazzle.

Handling

Cons

Not very sporty

'02 Passat — Well there is no substitute for VW handling, and the Passat is not exactly the number one example of Volkswagen engineering, but it is still a solid representation of German ingenuity. I personally loved driving this car, the car I got after it was a 2000 Passat V6, so once you go VW there's no going back.

to many faults.

Will Never Buy A Vw Passat Again. — performance- no good build quality- crap appearance-nice cost of ownership-very expensive fun factor- no fun at all:-( this is the worst car i have ever owned, i have changed almost everything on the car, example, petrol pump,driveshafts,radiator,exhaust,powerbraking system,coils,window mechanism and all the usual things,discs,pads,cambelt.This is a 2002 model gone 140000km faults appearing all the time in the dash, car stops, driveshafts fall off. The car i owned before (escort 1.6) ran for 6 years with usual servicing and no problems.

Pros

Fun, Comfortable, Roomy, Luxurious

Cons

Electrical problems here and there, but nothing ever serious.

25

Nicest Car I've Ever Owned — Didn't ever expect to find a sedan that was both fun to drive and extremely comfortable. The turbo engine, for it's size, is really quite amazing. The gas mileage is pretty par for the course for a 4 cylinder engine. There have been occasional problems with the overall quality of the automobile, but for the most part it has been pretty trouble free.
