The Bottom Line Is , Go & Get One Of You`re Able Too, They`ll Last A Lifetime — this was a 1989 car - a 1.8 gl - performance was really good - at worst the way i`d drive it, it would do 30 m.p.g. - the best it would do 44/46 m.p.g. - so long as you kept the revs around 4,500 r.p.m. it would keep up with most cars out there - the most i had out of her was 128 m.p.h. - build quality as with all volkswagens was exellent - i damn good car to look at too - so damn easy to work on & maintain too - an absolute hoot to drive - the only critisism i`d have was with the electrics just before i got rid of it, they went right up the swanny lol

Vw Passat 35i — Basic, good car. Nothing bad to say about it. Except the 1.6 engine, which sucked. Way too underdimensioned for the size of the car. It was good to drive. Corrosion was a minor problem. Some electric faults showed up and minor technic problems.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Big, really spacious, and smooth to drive.  Cheap spare parts.

Cons: Corrosion, basically ungly

This Is A Surprisingly Good Ride. By BobSteveVA

Best Diesel Car/sedan For Your Money. Period. By 5DDFL

Everything about it is fantastic! Owning this has sold me on the TDI brand for life. Having the Diesel engine is a bit more expensive so I wouldn't suggest buying a new one unless you plan on drivin... Read More

A Fuel-sipping Champion. By Beta_400

Great Overall Car By tneff350

This car was great. I did much out of town traveling and experienced great MPG through my interstate travels. Even better while traveling down two-lane roadways at 65-70 MPH. Very roomy car with lots ... Read More

Solid Family Car By ElephantMovers

3d Passat And No Wonder! By nedm

This 2010 is truly the last of the good performance Passats. VW blew it with the underpowered 2012+. It is simply a blast to drive. The 2.0L turbo w/ 200 hp is amazingly responsive and FAST! No wonder... Read More
